Pillars of Cannabis Governance: DIVERSITY

The best ideas are generated and executed by diverse teams. These teams are highly successful because they include individuals with various backgrounds working together pursuing a common objective.  Similarly, some of the best, well vetted, and most profitable strategies are spawned from diverse boards.

Different people experience the same situation differently, therefore diversity at the board level means the inclusion of talent that is different yet complementary; talent that is packaged in various shades, shapes, and sizes, and that is present in various cultures, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender.

Diverse thoughts, skills, backgrounds, and experiences at the highest level of decision making will help cannabis companies build and sustain a competitive advantage in this global economy.

As the cannabis industry experience explosive growth and the investor base morphs from retail to institutional, scrutiny becomes global and information transfer instant.  This will intensify the pressure on cannabis companies to have proper governance infrastructure in place.  

Institutional investors demand proper governance and at times take action to bring such demands to fruition.  By being transparent, independent, diverse, and responsive, Boards will be better equipped to ward off cynics and activist investors.  

The winners in the cannabis industry will be those with systems and processes in place that garner the support and confidence of both retail and institutional investors.
