Stemless Presents a Cannabis Infused Dinner with Purpose

This dinner was a collaboration between Stemless and The Oregon Girls Collaborative Project (OGCP) to help further involve young girls in pursuing an education in STEM fields. Different sponsors helped support the event and raised funds for the OGCP, including Confident Cannabis, Quill, and The Make & Mary.

From the article:

This event sought to support the OGCP, a non-profit dedicated to encouraging girls pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). This event marks the first time the cannabis community has connected with this nonprofit. Organizers hope events such as this can educate the Portland community in how interested parties can participate to increase gender-equitable involvement in STEM fields, as well as highlighting the OGCP’s work.

Cannabis industries who supported this event included Quill vape pens and Confident Cannabis, both of whom displayed their company’s offerings at this event.

According to Brad Bogus, VP of Growth & Marketing at Confident Cannabis, the vision statement they recently crafted serves as a compass that directed them to support initiatives such as OGCP…and the timing was somewhat serendipitous. Apparently, Confident Cannabis had just set their mission and vision statements less than 2 weeks before hearing of the event.

“Our vision statement reads, ‘To foster a sustainable and vibrant ecosystem in which every ethical cannabis business thrives,’” says Bogus. “Vibrant has always stood out to me and I was ruminating on that word when the Stemless dinner supporting STEM education in girls crossed my desk. Vibrancy is diverse, colorful, full of different personalities. You can’t have vibrancy without full gender parity and inclusion. Diversity is critical to vibrancy. In that vein, supporting the event as a sponsor was a no-brainer.”
