As more than 1,400 cannabis industry professionals flooded the Ellie Caulkins Opera House on Thursday, a majority of the attendees shared one unifying quality: They were women.
That’s business as usual at the Women Grow Leadership Summit, the second-year Colorado event that is part TED Talk, part networking mixers and part reunion for women and equality-minded men working toward the legalization and commercialization of marijuana.
“I know that we will create a cannabis industry that we all want be a part of,” Amy Dannemiller, the Women Grow co-founder who goes by the 420-friendly name Jane West, said Thursday as she finished her talk titled “Cannabis Cured My Impostor Syndrome.”
