Lack Of Diversity In Cannabis Working Group
Sen. Roberta Lange insinuated that the governor didn’t address diversity when forming the group: “Was there diversity, or was it just people the governor wanted to invite?” she asked Lombardo’s general counsel, Chris Nielsen.
Sen. Pat Spearman, chairperson of the Senate Committee on Commerce and Labor addressed the issue of gender, also address the issue.
“We have got to be intentional about diversity, equity, and inclusion, and if we’re not, we’re gonna keep doing the same thing over and over again,” Spearman said. “There’s always going to be a small group, pulled together at the last minute, and, oh, we just pulled folks together but it never occurs to anybody about diversity.”
