Gia Morón Steps Down As Women Grow President: A Look At Her Legacy

Gia Morón has stepped down from her role as president of Women Grow, signaling the end of an era for the organization, whose mission is to empower women in the legal cannabis industry. Established in 2014, Women Grow has been a catalyst for women's leadership in a space historically dominated by men. The company provides networking, mentorship, and business strategy resources for its members, encouraging growth and innovation in the rapidly developing cannabis industry.

According to a recent report by Marijuana Business Daily, women hold about 37% of executive-level roles in the cannabis industry, a figure far surpassing that of the national average for all businesses across different industries, which is around 21%. Experts attribute this in part to the efforts of Women Grow and leaders like Morón.

"Gia has been a force in this industry, and she leaves behind a powerful legacy," said Crystal Oliver, executive director of the Washington Sungrowers Industry Association. "Her work has not only brought more women into the space, but it has also lifted them into leadership roles."

During her tenure, Morón's strategic leadership not only fortified Women Grow’s position in the industry but also ensured that women from various backgrounds could access opportunities in the cannabis industry.

Her contributions didn't stop there. Recognizing the historical inequities related to cannabis, Morón led Women Grow's advocacy for policies that support marginalized communities, reflecting the growing consciousness within the industry towards social equity.

Morón's work has also paved the way for further research into the health benefits of cannabis. By fostering an open dialogue and encouraging conversations around cannabis, she has broken down barriers of stigma and misinformation, creating room for scientific study and innovation.

While her shoes will be hard to fill, Morón's impact on Women Grow and the cannabis industry at large is a testament to her pioneering spirit. Her tireless work to advocate for women and social justice in the cannabis industry sets the standard for the leaders to come. Morón’s departure is a pivotal moment for Women Grow but it marks not an end but a new beginning for the network, poised for continued growth in the hands of its members.
