We are devoted to serving colleges and universities. We recognize that we have a unique responsibility to create the space for change—and to remind people of the essential role higher education plays in breaking down unjust barriers. As one of the fastest-growing education technology companies in the world, we believe in offering an environment where all employees and customers feel accepted and set up for success, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, race, religion, or cultural background.

While we are still early in our journey, Top Hat has worked hard to make our company a place where everyone can be their authentic selves. As a result of our employees’ grassroots efforts, we have improved our hiring processes, developed strategic partnerships with organizations like the Black Professionals in Technology Network (BPTN), and broadened our talent funnel with the aim of bringing more diverse thought and representation to our team.
