A new chart released by the Marijuana Business Daily shows women continue to dominate the multi-billion dollar cannabis industry - at least in most sectors.
According to columnist Becky Olson, 63 percent of cannabis testing-lab CEOs, founders, and presidents were women - and women held nearly 50 percent of high-level positions at infused products/processing companies.
While women were well-represented in testing and processing, cannabis investors and firms are still largely men - 36% of those surveyed reported no women in executive roles. Overall, however, the numbers illustrate the established trend of gender balance in the cannabis industry.
It's a good thing. Diverse, inclusive workplaces attract and retain top talent, which cannabis entrepreneurs need to set themselves apart. And who doesn't want that?
