Leveling the Playing Field for equal representation in sports and business takes consistent action and a willingness to confront the historical inequalities of our industry. Our goal is to build a brighter future for sports by making a positive difference in our communities. Here’s a few ways we’ve been focusing our efforts as we continue to grow. Our work is just getting started, and we’re far from done.
BUILDING EQUAL PAY & EQUITY (in the sports x cannabis landscape)
We’ve pioneered what we call ‘The Modern Cap Table’ by ensuring more females, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ athletes have an opportunity to invest in Mendi and the cannabis industry’s bright future. We’re proud of the diverse group of investors and athletes supporting our vision, and the steady work by our partners at the Oregon Cannabis Association to bring forward groundbreaking legislation to ensure a fair and prosperous future can be more evenly distributed across historically marginalized groups.
CHAMPIONING SUSTAINABLE STEWARDSHIP
We’re proud of our natural backdrop in Oregon and fortunate it’s where we get to call home and play outside. The natural resources here are equal parts inspiring and vital to our local, high-quality supply chain. The stories behind the people farming and living here deserve attention, respect and celebration.
EMPOWERING THE ATHLETE IN EVERYONE
We believe there’s an athlete mindset inherently living within all of us. Through challenging ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually on a daily level, we’re able to thrive and feel empowered with joy and a sense of purpose. Our aim is to allow more people to tap into their inner-athlete so they can stay on top of their game, longer.
HTC RELAY 2021
Team Mendi was thrilled to both participate and sponsor the infamous Hood to Coast Relay this recently, a staple in the Northwest community for athletes of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. At the finish line, we were left inspired and fired up to have met so many other teams from all-over the U.S.
