Fostering equitable opportunity and reparative justice in the Commonwealth’s cannabis industry is a state, local, and federal effort that requires great partners inside and outside of government.
EON is honored to count Mayor Wu’s Office of Economic Opportunity and Inclusion, and City of Boston Cannabis Business Manager Shekia Scott, among those allies and leaders working to create equitable economic opportunity.
Please join us to honor City of Boston Cannabis Business Manager Shekia Scott and other government and community leaders at our Celebration of Cannabis Equity Champions next Tuesday, Dec. 19 at 6 p.m. at New Dia Cannabis Co.’s Fenway location.
Ms. Scott oversees the Boston Equity Program for Cannabis businesses, manages technical assistance and grant funding, facilitates the launch and strengthening of new and existing cannabis businesses, and provides aid for cannabis entrepreneurs through all stages of development.
From 2018 to 2020 she served as the inaugural Director of Equity and Community Outreach for the Massachusetts Cannabis Control Commission where she started the nation’s first statewide social equity program.
