Celebrating International Women's Day
March 8th 2022, by Hightower
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.
Stats that may surprise you!
According to a 2020 report from the National Women's Business Council:
• Approximately 42 percent of all businesses in the U.S. are owned by women—that’s roughly 13 million female entrepreneurs!
• 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."
-Natalie Hartkopf, co-founder & CEO
