Deloitte’s Women in Cannabis Leadership webcast

Date and Time




On January 28th, join Deloitte and your peers to kick-off 2021 with inspiring female leaders from Canada’s federal government (Health Canada in Ottawa) and diverse representatives from the cannabis community speaking about overcoming leadership challenges in a volatile and stigmatized industry and how regulatory, legal and public affairs issues form new career paths for women in cannabis.

 Through a panel discussion and live Q&A facilitated by Karina Lahnakoski, a partner in Deloitte’s risk advisory practice and former VP of Cannabis Compliance Inc. (CCI), panelists (see below) will share their unique journeys to leadership positions in the federally regulated cannabis space and provide insights to help build better leaders in this dynamic and challenging environment.

During this session we will explore topics such as:

  • Personal journeys to success of female leaders in cannabis
  • Opportunities presented by regulatory, legal and public affairs issues in a nascent industry
  • Overcoming challenges and stigma faced by women in cannabis
  • Investments that we can make now to enhance Canada’s competitiveness in the cannabis industry and promote gender diversity in leadership positions in the sector.
