As a head start - here are some things the Vangst team is already working toward to improve this super RAD community of folks passionate about working in Cannabis...

  • More education for those looking to cross-over, level-up, or just learn more. Sure, we do this in blog posts, but we're thinking about ways to empower the community to educate one another. This community section was a start. We'd love to build out features from here that empower members (not just Vangst team), to act as mentors, teachers, guides for all those looking to learn more about working in Cannabis.
  • Building out a better search feature. We give you a simple input, but we can do a lot more. We can give you some suggestions, as well as show you some cool filters that you might not even know exist!
  • And a quick emoji-picker, cause you know - fun. And emojis go a long way to building community ❤️. Right now, you have to find the emoji and copy/paste it into this editor. (see what I did there -- "pro-tip")
  • Additional tooling/features that help community members (companies and individuals), amplify their voice and ability to "give back" to the community in a way that contributes to cultivating great talent, social change, and generally opening the doors to more opportunities for careers and growth in the industry.

Have any great ideas? Connect w/ me on Vangst, and then shoot me an email. https://vangst.com/members/bree-thomas

I think it would be worthwhile to create a place for the leaders in our industry to talk about how they go about building diverse and inclusive teams. DEI is a huge opportunity that the cannabis industry gets to instill in its founding code from day one so I'd love to hear how hiring authorities and managers are going about building really inclusive environments that make their employees feel like they truly belong.

I'm really excited for more education! Having the information readily available will be super valuable for those who are just entering the industry or wanting to just learn more. Oh and can't wait for the emoji picker ;)

    Does anyone know of any good cannabis events happening this summer?

    I would like to see the "join the convO" at the top of the screen so its easier to see how I can reply to a cha, also a topic around continuing education in cannabis maybe.

    We totally hear you, @Matt Davidson. Thanks for your suggestions! 🙌🏻

    I love this! There definitely needs to me more discussions and brainstorming around this topic!

    Always looking for more conversations about the intersections of the cannabis industry with environmental and social justice - there can't be enough of this.

    Ashley-Andrews-756833: I think they should make vangs more like a social media platform for people in the cannabis industry because it would make it easier to see what each individual is doing and easier for people looking for employment to find their niche as well. I also think there shoukd be an app so it's more accessible and gives me notifications.

    Hey Ashley! When you mention "...like a social media platform...", I'm curious what specific features come to mind for you on this front? Always eager to hear from our members on feature ideas. :)

    Ashley, this idea is amazing!!!!! What types of information would you like there to be notifications for?
