On February 13, 2024, the cannabis industry celebrates a milestone as the MJBiz Diversity, Inclusion and Equity Report reveals that the ranks of women and minority executives have returned to their pre-pandemic levels. This rebound signifies the industry's commitment to increasing representation and fostering a more inclusive environment.
A Rebound in Representation
The recent MJBiz Diversity, Inclusion and Equity Report showcases the progress made within the cannabis industry in promoting diversity and inclusion. After a temporary setback during the pandemic, the number of women and minority executives in the cannabis sector has rebounded, reflecting the industry's determination to create a more representative workforce.
As part of this commitment, the MJBizDaily editorial team has launched its 12th annual survey to gather insights from business owners, executives, and entrepreneurs in the marijuana and hemp sectors. The survey aims to provide crucial market, financial, and operational data for businesses within the cannabis space.
The MJBizDaily Factbook Survey: Contributing to the Greater Good
MJBizDaily invites cannabis professionals to participate in their annual Factbook survey, a valuable resource for the industry. By contributing their insights, marijuana and hemp business owners will help create a comprehensive analysis that benefits the entire cannabis sector.
The survey data will be used to develop market research reports and stories for MJBizDaily.com and MJBiz Magazine, providing actionable insights and industry benchmarks. As a participant in the survey, your contributions will help shape the future of the cannabis industry and promote a more inclusive and diverse landscape.
Another significant development impacting many cannabis businesses is the new beneficial ownership reporting requirements under the Corporate Transparency Act. These requirements aim to increase transparency and accountability within the industry by identifying the individuals who ultimately own or control a company.
The implementation of these new regulations will likely have far-reaching implications for the cannabis sector. As the industry continues to grow and evolve, it is crucial for businesses to stay informed and adapt to these changes in order to thrive.
