WEmpowered is a business community for female leaders working within the cannabis industry helping to promote networking, partnership and advocacy. WEmpowered fosters opportunity for women to lead in driving healthy and fair policy forward as the California regulations for cannabis businesses are written and implemented. WEmpowered meets bi-monthly in California where a hundred plus women gather together to socialize, network and listen to policy makers and state regulators, such as Lori Ajax, give advice and exchange in a healthy dialogue.
WEmpowered was created by Andrea Brooks Founder of Sava, Erin Gore Founder of Garden Society and Pamela Hadfield Co-founder of HelloMD. Their collective experience as entrepreneurs both inside and outside of the cannabis industry led them to believe that a female focused community for leaders would help foster and encourage a more easeful transition into the new regulatory framework being established in California over the coming years.
