Black CannaBusiness Magazine is continuing to celebrate women in the cannabis industry who are trailblazers and creating opportunities for progress in the movement. This week we’re celebrating Amber Senter, the Chair of the Board and Executive Director of Supernova Women.
The organization is dedicated to empowering people of color to become industry shareholders in cannabis. Amber is a trusted voice in the cannabis industry with extensive experience in operations and procedures. Through her work, Senter obtained Oakland’s first onsite consumption permit and continues to be a role model for cannabis entrepreneurs.
On the social equity front, Supernova Women worked with the City of Oakland to launch the first social equity program in the country. Bill SB1294 was created to fund local social equity programs throughout the state of California and most recently progressed social equity work into workforce development programs for cannabis.
Senter has also developed through MAKR House, the first shared social equity cannabis manufacturing facility in the country, Equity Works Incubator. Learn more here about how Amber Senter and Supernova Women continue creating a more equitable and sustainable industry for Black and Brown folks.
