The Arcview Group’s Women’s Inclusion Network announces partnership with WEiC to optimize opportunities for women in cannabis

Cannabis Networks Collaborate to Offer Advanced Mentorship, Interactive Events, and 

Educational Platforms for Their Members in 2021


LOS ANGELES, Calif. (January 11, 2020): The Arcview Group’s Women’s Inclusion Network joins forces with Women Empowered in Cannabis (WEiC) to develop a cohesive program that benefits members of both organizations. In 2021, Women’s Inclusion Network and WEiC will offer joint membership, access to all programs within each network, as well as reveal three unique co-hosted events in a mutually beneficial collaboration.

“Together, we’re working to make this industry more inclusive. We want everyone, women and men, to have equal access to capital, shelf space, board seats, C-suite level opportunities, education, and deal flow,” says Laura Toomey, Chief of Staff of The Arcview Group. “Most importantly, we want members at all levels in the business to feel connected.”

Women’s Inclusion Network and WEiC look to do more than level the playing field across the cannabis industry. Both networks are lighting things up ‘the women’s way.’ “We’re not trying to fit in where the men are, we’re developing our own space that will help women achieve the same level of success,” comments Sarah Falvo, Director of Community for The Arcview Group.

Creating an environment of generating long lasting connections with the right people, which is very important when raising funds to build a new cannabis company, is what Women’s Inclusion Network and WEiC aim to accomplish.

“A powerful network can open doors to funding and other support necessary for a successful business. By sharing our network with one another, the Women Empowered in Cannabis community enables more women to step into a place of empowerment in their businesses,” Kyra Reed, Founder and Director of Community of WEiC.

Joint membership to Women’s Inclusion Network and WEiC includes exclusive webinars, mentorship sessions, educational video series, speed-networking, virtual speaking events, site tours, and an interactive job board. In-person events to be scheduled pending nationwide COVID-19 regulations. Keynote speakers and member-driven events will cover a vast array of topics including supply chain, marketing, and finances. Additionally, the networks consist of Legacy Employees that are in place to assist new companies to enter and compete in the market.

Joint membership starts at $600 per individual. To learn more or become a member, please visit
