Cornell University’s Cannabis Workshop Initiative and the Harlem Business Alliance in partnership with Cann I Create host an event that brings minority owned business education of the cannabis industry to the state of NY, in honor of Martin Luther King day–

Their focus is to raise the entrepreneurial bar in black & minority communities by teaching people about the Cannabis & Hemp Industry. Cann. I. Create was created in order to give first hand experience and dive into the work of cannabis through virtual workshops and in person training. They have a dream to create JOBS. The theme of “job creation” runs through Dr. Martin Luther King’s writings. In an article published in Look just after his assassination (King, 1968), Dr. King wrote: “We call our demonstration a campaign for jobs and income because we feel that the economic question is the most crucial that black people, and poor people generally, are confronting.”

The aim of this program is to provide job training in the cannabis industry to minorities through education, with the goal of creating employment opportunities for them. By investing in education, we are working to empower minorities and support their professional development.

1. Improved job opportunities and career advancement: Job training programs can help minorities gain the skills and knowledge they need to secure employment in the cannabis industry or advance in their current roles.

2. Increased earning potential: With the growing demand for cannabis professionals, trained workers may be able to command higher salaries and wages than those without specialized training.

3. Enhanced job performance: Training programs can help workers understand their duties and responsibilities more thoroughly, leading to improved job performance and customer satisfaction.

4. Enhanced job satisfaction: Training can help workers feel more confident in their roles, leading to increased job satisfaction and retention.

5. Improved safety: Training programs can help workers understand and follow safety protocols, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries on the job.

6. Enhanced knowledge of the industry: Training programs can provide valuable insights into the cannabis industry, including current and emerging trends, best practices, and regulations.

7. Improved networking opportunities: Training programs can provide opportunities to connect with other professionals in the industry, expanding one’s network and building professional relationships.

8. Enhanced problem-solving skills: Training programs can teach workers how to think critically and solve problems, skills that are valuable in any job.

9. Improved communication skills: Training programs can help workers develop effective communication skills, which are essential for success in any role.

10. Enhanced ability to adapt to change: The cannabis industry is constantly evolving, and training programs can help workers stay up-to-date and adapt to changes in the industry.

Let’s celebrate job creation and workforce development while promoting the principles of Dr. Martin Luther King.
