This year's theme for International Women's Day is "Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow." Hightower celebrates women-owned companies and the significant impact they make across all aspects of business today.

According to a 2020 report from the National Women's Business Council:

• US women-owned companies employ 9.4 million people

• These company earnings represent nearly $2 trillion in revenue

Our CEO has a few words to say about the importance of women in business: 

“Since our founding, Hightower has been a majority women-owned business and we’re proud to be officially recognized as a Women’s Business Enterprise. We believe pushing to make even greater strides in gender equity and working to support diversity overall is critical in achieving a more sustainable future, for our industry and beyond."
