Following the success of the inaugural event last year, the ground-breaking Womxn, Wellness and Cannabis Conference (WWC Conference) returns May 26 and 27. In an exciting development for this year’s conference, the largest free event of its kind will include an additional full day of programming focused on psychedelics.
WWC Conference provides a unique opportunity to network with female leaders in an inclusive, fun and educational environment. If you need any more convincing to participate in this seminal conference, we have compiled five reasons why this is a must attend event:
Expert education and industry insight
Spearheaded by Marigold PR, alongside an advisory committee of industry experts, WWC Conference features two full days of engaging panel discussions, keynotes and Q&As. The event unites cannabis and psychedelics trailblazers from across the world, for a truly inclusive, diverse and global exchange of knowledge. Highlights of his year’s conference include talks on the future of the international cannabis industry and the evolution of the psychedelic industry. The full agenda can be found below:
Women supporting women
Hosted in celebration of the feminine cannabis and psychedelic experience, WWC Conference is an impactful event created by women for women. Despite cannabis being a relatively new sector, its lack of diversity remains a deep-rooted concern, with women holding just 16 per cent of leadership positions.
As the excitement builds around the potential of psychedelics, creating a diverse and inclusive industry is of paramount importance. As a dedicated space for female-led discussions, WWC conference provides a vital platform for women to connect, collaborate and inspire one another.
For industry professionals and those looking to break into the blossoming cannabis and psychedelics space, WWC Conference is hosting a series of ticketed networking events. These provide exclusive opportunities to forge direct relationships with business leaders, experts and influencers from across the emerging markets.
By bringing women in cannabis and psychedelics together under one banner, WWC Conference supports cross-market cooperation, partnerships and innovation by those that share a mutual commitment to industry innovation, diversity and inclusion.
Connection during COVID-19 pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic impact on wellness worldwide, disrupting or halting critical mental health services in over 90 per cent of countries. In an effort to stop the spread of the virus communal gatherings have been widely prohibited, leading to increased isolation around the globe.
As health and wellness challenges have changed dramatically in the last year, it is now more important than ever that women can come together to shape the future of cannabis and psychedelics, in a fun, inclusive and accessible environment.
Accessible, inclusive and open to all
To create an inclusive, diverse and accessible industry event, WWC Conference takes places virtually and free to attend. This removes barriers to participation and is open to all. Last year’s conference attracted nearly 1,000 attendees, with this year’s event showcasing speakers from four continents for a global discussion on the future of cannabis and psychedelics.
