The First Cannabis Conference for Women of Color

What Is Higher?

The First Cannabis Conference for Women of Color

Welcome to the first-ever Women of Color Cannabis Business and Wellness Conference - a groundbreaking event that is set to redefine the cannabis industry by highlighting the contributions of women of color.

For far too long, women of color have been overlooked despite their countless accomplishments in the cannabis industry and community. This conference is designed to change that by providing a platform for women of color to upskill, educate, and amplify their voices.

Over the course of two days, our conference will offer a wealth of resources to attendees. From expert-led panel discussions and educational workshops to networking opportunities and wellness activities, we have curated a dynamic program that will equip women of color with the tools they need to succeed in the cannabis industry.

Whether you are a seasoned industry professional or just starting out, you will find something valuable at our conference. Our speakers and panelists represent a diverse range of experiences and perspectives and will offer insights on topics such as business development, marketing, branding, and more.

In addition to the professional development opportunities, our conference also includes wellness activities such as yoga and meditation. We recognize that taking care of oneself is just as important as building a successful business, and we have made sure to prioritize both at our conference.

We invite all women in the cannabis industry and community to join us for this groundbreaking event. Let's come together, learn from one another, and amplify our voices in this growing industry. Register now and be a part of history!


Why should you be a part of "Higher"?

"Black women have had to develop a larger vision of our society than perhaps any other group. They have had to understand white men, white women, and black men. And they have had to understand themselves. When black women win victories, it is a boost for virtually every segment of society." - Angela Davis
