Who attends? You'll meet women (and men) at all different stages of their career in the cannabis industry. Many will be in the research phase, just learning more about opportunities, while still working day jobs. Some are looking for jobs with existing organizations. Others are starting up their own cannabis venture or ancillary business. Depending on the status of legalization in your state, you'll also meet cannabis business owners & investors who are well on their way.
Why should I attend? Personal connections are the key to professional success. Through the wide variety of events offered to members of Women Grow, trustworthy business relationships sprout from the face-to-face interactions of our members. Together we have more power. As the cannabis industry grows on a national and global scale, women have the opportunity to build a new American industry from inception and redefine the workplace to create environments in which we can flourish and define our own destiny, and cultivate the next generation of industry leaders.
How can I get the most out of networking events? We recommend bringing business cards and a pen to take notes. If you don't have business cards, check out Moo for 10% off your first order (and your first order supports Women Grow). Watch our video on networking tips from Women Grow founding members.
Where are there Women Grow events? Women Grow events are held in small towns and large cities, in prohibition and legalized states alike. No matter where your county is on the road to legalization, you can have a Women Grow chapter.
Are there ID requirements to attend? All attendees must be 21 years or older and have a valid ID as many events occur in establishments serving alcohol.
What are my transportation/parking options? We recommend taking public transportation. Street parking is not guaranteed, plan accordingly.
Can I pay at the door? Paying in advance helps speed up our check-in process and makes sure you receive all event announcements. Are tickets refundable or transferrable? You may send a friend to attend in your place. Tickets are not refundable.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? No, as long as your ID matches the name your registered the ticket under. You may also show us your ticket on your mobile device. If you are giving your ticket to a colleague, please forward them the ticket to show us.
Are events on different days other than the first Thursday of the month? Women Grow networking events are on the first Thursday of each month (except for holiday weeks). Social events can be planned at other times. Women Grow's national events are held a few times a year. Make sure you're on the Women Grow mailing list to receive invitations.
Why do you charge for events? Women Grow is funded by event proceeds and sponsors. We charge for our events so that Women Grow is a self-sustaining organization. If you are unable to afford an event, please contact the organizer to ask about volunteer opportunities.
