MCR'S COVID-19 RESPONSE: We have updated our facilities and procedures for enhanced safety.
Our Commitment to an Equitable Industry

At MCR Labs, we recognize the necessity to advocate for a fair and equitable industry and our responsibility to lower barriers and create opportunities for the communities most affected by the war on drugs. 

We strive to promote diversity and inclusion in the cannabis industry, but to pursue these ideals, we must lead by example. Read on to learn more about how MCR Labs is tackling diversity and inclusion within our organization and our efforts to support an equitable industry in Massachusetts and beyond. 

Diversity at MCR Labs

How we’re working to do better:

  • Recruiting Policy – implemented in 2018, our recruiting policy prioritizes diversity candidates and those from communities most impacted by the war on drugs. 
  • Diversity Committee – Established in 2019, our diversity committee works to promote inclusion within the workplace as well as the industry at the large.
  • Vendor Diversity Program – Also established in 2019, this program requires us to do an annual review of the vendors we choose to work with and prioritize those owned by Black, Indigenous, or other People of Color (BIPOC).

In the Community

  • We regularly support advocacy groups like Elevate NE, Mass EON, and Minorities for Medical Marijuana (M4MM) through donations and sponsorships.
  • We have consistently donated $1,500 per month to organizations that support BIPOC and those affected by the war on drugs. In June 2020, we decided to raise that monthly contribution to $3,000.
  • We have organized cannabis job fairs hosted and promoted within communities most affected by the war on drugs. We invited local cannabis companies to join us and advertise their open positions and provided attendees with relevant information and resources to help them enter the industry. This is an ongoing initiative that will resume once it is safe to do so. 
  • We have consulted and provided BIPOC with the resources and information necessary for them to grow their own cannabis businesses in addition to offering relaxed pricing and payment options to equity and economic empowerment organizations.
