Lisa Snyder is cannabis and women’s rights activist, a web developer and online strategist and the Founder & CEO of Tokeativity, The Global Cannabis Community for Women. She has worked on the web since the mid 90’s and has created and organized feminist events since 2005.
As the daughter of an Emmy Award-winning CBS television video engineer and growing up organizing the neighborhood children, she has used the combined efforts of technology and live events to create communities across the country.
After working for MTV.com, Magnet Media, a woman-owned production company in Manhattan, and attending feminist festivals, she established her own nationwide women’s benefits, local women’s festivals, a feminist non-profit community in New York City, and a meetup for bisexual & lesbian women that’s been active since 2008.
She has been recognized for her work in Rolling Stone, MJ Lifestyle, Travel Portland, CannabisTours.com, Magnetic Magazine, Willamette Week, The Potlander, Time Out New York, Go Magazine, Oregon Leaf, PUSH Mag, and The Weed Blog, among others.
After losing both parents to cancer in her 20’s, she passionately partnered her community building, feminist event planning, and web skills with fellow event planner, cannabis entrepreneur and community builder, Samantha Montanaro, to create Tokeativity, a cannabis community for women in 2016. Together, they help bridge the cannabis industry with consumers to help educate and empower women, in hopes of encouraging forward movement, healing and ending the stigma around cannabis consumption.
She most recently headed the development and launch of Tokeativity’s online social network, Tokeativity Connect and was invited to be a part of the Oregon Entrepreneur Network’s Cannabis Team.
