Corporate Responsibility

Diversity

Our Approach

Building a diverse and inclusive workplace is a vital business imperative at Cox — and the right thing to do to reflect the world in which we live. Diversity nourishes engagement and respect among our employees, our communities, and the people and businesses we serve. Moving toward a more diverse and inclusive workplace leads to a richer, more creative and team-oriented work environment, and helps us build strong relationships within our communities.

Fostering a diverse workforce helps us to retain and attract the very best talent for our businesses. In turn, multiple perspectives allow us to connect with our diverse customer base to ensure we offer the very best products and services in the market. We focus on four areas.

Diversity among our employees
