Sign up to be a DEI Program Sponsor!

We’ve enrolled well over 100 social equity operators and applicants in our Social Equity Scholarship Program since its inception in June 2020. Participants are gaining first-hand access to regulators in key markets to get insight on the industry, tips for raising capital, and advice on how to access and utilize data to ensure success in their businesses, along with all the other benefits available to NCIA members.

To date, NCIA has provided equity operators and applicants complimentary memberships totaling over $100,000 in value. We fully intend to expand this program to provide all equity operators their first year of membership but we need your support.

If you share our vision for a more inclusive and equitable cannabis industry, please support NCIA’s DEI program through a sponsorship. DEI program sponsors not only help us continue to provide complimentary memberships to equity operators, it also comes with the benefits below for an entire month!

Become a DEI Program Sponsor for $6,000 and you will receive the following brand exposure over the course of a month:

  • Shout-outs and brand exposure during four of NCIA’s Cannabis Diversity Report Facebook broadcast
  • Brand exposure and shoutout during Catalyst Conversations webinar and in all marketing in advance of the webinar
  • Logo and link to your company website on NCIA’s DEI program web page
  • Social media posts on all NCIA’s platforms acknowledging your business’s commitment to social equity
  • Recognition of your generous sponsorship of six NCIA equity scholarship recipients
