We Are JAINE welcomes corporate member C3/High Profile
C3 Industries (C3), a multi-state, vertically integrated cannabis company with headquarters in Ann Arbor, MI, has announced its support of We are JAINE (“JAINE”), a non-profit organization elevating women in the Missouri cannabis space. C3 joined as a corporate member and contributed a sizable donation towards efforts to honor and educate women in the emerging market.
Launched in 2021, We Are JAINE began with the goal of empowering women in Missouri to get involved in the growing cannabis industry. JAINE is a non-profit organization focused on supporting, honoring, and educating women by building alliances to foster a united voice. JAINE provides educational events both virtually and in person, as well as a robust members-only directory to provide members and women-owned businesses a network of resources and opportunities to build relationships with others in the space. C3 and its High Profile Cannabis shops will fund initiatives including scholarship memberships and in-person events through its donation.
“It is essential to our team that we partner with companies that share the same values and passion for uplifting women in cannabis in our home state of Missouri,” said Tammy Puyear, Co-President of We Are JAINE. “The C3 and High Profile teams have proven this commitment in their work to actively engage with diverse candidates and hiring practices. We applaud their dedication to creating a more equitable cannabis space and are grateful for their support as a corporate sponsor as we expand our reach and impact.”
“C3 teamed up with JAINE to help support their inspiring mission in the communities that several High Profile Cannabis shops call home,” said Angela Augustine, Director of Stores at C3 Industries. “High Profile was proud to be the official title sponsor of the JAINE women’s brunch in Kansas City on August 27 and looks forward to supporting additional networking and educational events. C3’s donation and involvement with JAINE will provide free memberships to the dedicated women looking to break into cannabis, removing financial barriers to participation and welcoming more passionate individuals into the organization.”
A passion for cannabis combined with a desire to produce premium, high-quality products led brothers Ankur and Vishal Rungta and long-time friend, Joel Ruggiero, to launch their multi-state business, C3 Industries (C3). The Company, comprised of cultivation and manufacturing facilities and retail locations in Michigan, Massachusetts, Missouri, and Oregon, is dedicated to masterfully crafting, branding, and selling premium cannabis products in legal medical and recreational markets. C3 currently has 250,000 square feet of cultivation and processing space in operation or the final stages of completion, as well as 20+ retail stores now open or in construction.
