Greetings fellow Women Leaders!
A very real situation has been exposed today regarding a member of the cannabis community and a previous member of the initial organization that was Women Leaders in Cannabis.
We want to be extremely clear:
Women Leaders has zero tolerance for any form of fascism, racism, and bigotry.
Women Leaders LLC., as it exists today, is a completely new entity, founded by its current board: Anna Kaplan, Heidi Fikstad, Johanna Williamson, Wendy Mintey, Ryann Haworth, and Bunni Krass.
It is of the utmost importance that the Board of the Women Leaders is very clear about our desire to encourage & support the diversity of the entire community we are a part of.
Women Leaders is a 501 C-6 Non profit, founded with the values of inclusivity for all women in the cannabis industry regardless of position, race, color, or creed. We have opened up membership to any and all people who identify as women and have an interest in cannabis and the wonderful business and social network we are building together.
We will not stand to tolerate any association with the previous founder’s ideologies and actions, and encourage all women interested in being a part of our non-profit to speak out against hate and intolerance.
All our love,
The Women Leaders Board
Anna Kaplan, Heidi Fikstad, Johanna Williamson, Wendy Mintey, Ryann Haworth and Bunni Krass.
