The Professional Development and Education committee of Illinois Women in Cannabis is pleased to present: Going Green: Cannabis Education as a Career Path
The cannabis industry is booming. Soon it will be legal and an everyday part of life. This means there will be ample need for educational programs, certifications, and training. With so many options and very little regulation, how do you know which ones are legitimate and truly support education and workforce development within the cannabis industry? If you are looking to start your career, or pivot into the industry with a current skill set, join IWC for a conversation with leaders and instructors of academic institutions and cannabis training programs to find out how to identify reputable programs, and which ones may best suit your chosen career path in the cannabis industry.
