North Highland Chicago

When people say it can’t be done, Chicagoans step up and do it. From its early days, the City of Big Shoulders has striven to leave a mark on the world, and that brand of resourceful, independent thinking has driven North Highland’s Chicago office since 2013. From cornfields and shop floors to the boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies, our Chicago office brings the full portfolio of North Highland’s global expertise and pays tribute to Chicago’s “community first” motto through partnerships with United Way and North Lawndale Employment Network.

our culture

In the Community

We want to create sustainable, long-term economic empowerment in the communities in which we work and live. To do that, we support projects and organizations that tackle financial stability, family sustaining employment and housing holistically, because our research shows these core areas can have a bigger and longer term impact. Our annual Day of Giving Back has been another way we have invested in local communities, doing everything from preparing meals, teaching professional workshops, painting playgrounds and more.
