We Are Legally Committed to Expanding Opportunity
As a benefit corporation our legal charter dedicates us to the cause of expanding opportunity and inclusion
To improve opportunity and inclusion
The Highway team believes that the skills gap is a tragedy impairing the prosperity of young adults and of businesses. Young adults sit at one side of the gap struggling with a traditional higher education system that costs too much and does not prepare students well for valuable jobs. Thus many are not in jobs that utilize their full potential: they need the skills and connections to find their path. Those from disadvantaged communities suffer the worst of this system.
On the other side of the gap are employers who are struggling to find the talent that they need to drive their businesses, particularly in digital careers where escalating demand overwhelms a talent supply that cannot keep up. The Highway team are all veterans of the marketing technology industry and have seen first hand time and time again the struggles of employers to find talent for marketing operations roles.
Thus we started Highway, and we made it a public benefit corporation with legal charter committing the company to improving opportunity and inclusion. Highway serves as a bridge between underemployed young adults and talent-seeking marketing employers and in doing so generates greater opportunity and prosperity. And we have a particular focus on improving inclusion for those who suffer the most from the status quo: females, minorities, and those from non-college households.
The needs are so clear for underemployed young adults and for digital marketing employers. The Highway team has the knowledge and network to solve those needs and in doing so move us forward in expanding opportunity and inclusion.
