Cannabis Talks: AAPIs in Cannabis
May 26 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) are increasingly starting cannabis businesses and moving up the ranks in cannabis corporations. In addition to the stereotypes, perceptions, and culture barriers, many AAPis must combat the cannabis stigma that is prominent within their own families and communities, and recently have had to address an increase in anti-AAPI discrimination.
Join the CalAsian Foundation and other leaders for a wide-reaching conversation on the AAPI experience in the cannabis industry. We’ll hear stories from successful AAPI leaders and entrepreneurs, discuss the growing opportunities within the sector, the ongoing industry challenges, and talk about how we can normalize cannabis within our own communities.
