Held on International Women’s Day, March 8, 2024, in Toronto, ON, the event is in collaboration with VIP sponsor the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS), as well as cannabis advisory firm The Panther Group, creative agency Sister Merci, and cannabis wellness brand Solei. Radicle Femmes will highlight the achievements of women entrepreneurs, professionals, and advocates in shaping the industry landscape, and will discuss challenges that women continue to face, including access to funding and low representation in the sector.
Held at Soluna Toronto, this event will draw a diverse audience, including entrepreneurs, marketers, consultants, retail decision-makers, licensed producers, brand representatives, and various ancillary services. The format will feature a dynamic program of panel discussions and valuable networking sessions that create a platform for business opportunities. The event’s official tagline, “I can’t believe we still need these events,” reflects the sentiment of many women in the cannabis industry and beyond, as the Women Entrepreneurship Knowledge Hub estimates that only 18% of businesses are majority-owned by women in Canada.
“Women are underrepresented in leadership positions in many industries, including the cannabis industry, despite their significant contribution to the sector,” says Tanya Watkins, Vice President, Corporate Affairs, Social Responsibility & Strategic Engagement at the OCS. “The OCS’s commitment to enabling a vibrant cannabis marketplace is tied to supporting a diverse and inclusive industry. We’re proud to sponsor Radicle Femmes, which celebrates the many contributions of women who continue pushing the legal cannabis industry forward.”
