MJ Biz report…..

Two dozen of the leading cannabis companies in Canada collectively employ only 11 women on their boards, and most – including the market leaders – have not disclosed written policies relating to the identification and nomination of female directors.

Analysis of regulatory filings for cannabis companies traded on Canadian stock exchanges reveals that the ratio of women on marijuana-industry boards is 7%.

While that’s a slight improvement from the previous year’s 5%, it is well below the Canadian average of 15%-20%.

 

Men hold 93% of Canadian cannabis boardroom positions
