Social responsibility in the cannabis industry

We help brands develop and execute social responsibility plans in order to become more sustainable, more diverse, and more engaged with their communities. 

We can work with you to improve the diversity of your staff, the diversity of your clientele, the sustainability of your operations, and to coordinate events like expungement clinics, job fairs, and educational workshops that introduce your brand and your values to new audiences.
