Jami De Lou on Creating Meaningful ID&E Change

01/12/2022

Jami de Lou, director of inclusion and diversity at Cox Enterprises, recently spoke with StrategicCHRO about what it takes to build the kind of corporate culture that leads to meaningful change. 

“As a company with a long history of supporting inclusion, diversity and equity (ID&E), we’re not starting from zero, but instead building on our past and seeing what more we can do,” said de Lou. 

According to de Lou, building a stronger, more inclusive workplace begins with actively listening to employee feedback. It means promoting diversity in hiring and through strategic partnerships. And for Cox in particular, it means embracing an enterprisewide commitment to improve representation of executive people of color by 50% over the next five years. 

“ID&E professionals are strategic partners within our organizations and play a critical role in helping drive change,” said de Lou. "This work is not for the faint of heart. It requires a range of skills and a depth of subject matter expertise, but also deep resiliency and empathy.”
