Catalyst Conversations: It Takes an Educational Ecosystem to Empower a Community
NCIA’s #IndustryEssentials webinar series is our premier digital educational series featuring a variety of interactive programs allowing us to provide you timely, engaging and essential education when you need it most.
Looking for ways to empower your community? Trying to figure out a way to build an impactful business in cannabis? It’s going to take dynamic and intentional ecosystems to get the most out of the generational opportunities cannabis is opening up.
Join this dynamic conversation that’s sure to get you fired up and leave you with elevated ideas, understanding, and network to achieve the impact you’re looking for.
Members of NCIA’s Education Committee and Health Equity Working Group are joined by San Francisco’s Office of Cannabis, City College of San Francisco, and Green Enterprise’s HBCU College to Careers Tour.
The institutions will share their experiences, lessons learned, best practices, and perhaps most importantly demonstrate the importance of collaboration to create truly holistic educational ecosystems that will create both long and short term impact, particularly in communities harmed by the War on Drugs.
As always the Catalyst Conversations are designed to give enrollees in our Equity Scholarship program the opportunity to network and gain access to valuable knowledge that will help them excel in the cannabis industry.
• Gain insights into how educational institutions, government agencies, the business community, and the private sector are collaborating to foster Equity in cannabis and the community at large
• Understand the obstacles and how to navigate them when creating a college to careers pipeline for greater DEI in cannabis
• Learn about what types of educational programming exists for people interested in entering the cannabis industry
