Lead Like a Girl this March

03/01/2022

This March, Cox is honoring the contributions of women throughout history with a message to “Lead Like a Girl”— that is, to empower and lead with empathy and authenticity as we collectively strive toward a more gender-equitable world. It’s all about redefining what it means to be a woman leader.  

A Brief History 

Since 1987, the United States has formally recognized March as National Women’s History Month to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of the country’s women. At Cox, we’re determined to do the same and more by encouraging a lifelong commitment to being an effective listener, using inclusive language, and building meaningful relationships based on trust, consistency and accountability with marginalized individuals and groups. 

Cox is also dedicated to supporting the empowerment of girls and women through our non-profit partnerships, such as Girls Inc., the Atlanta Women’s Foundation and Catalyst. 

A Celebration Without Borders 

Toward the end of World War I in 1917, Russian women observed the first International Women’s Day on February 23 (March 8 on Gregorian calendar) when they began to strike for “bread and peace” in response to the death of over two million Russian soldiers. It was later decided that International Women’s Day would be marked annually on March 8 in honor of the strike and has remained the global date ever since.

Why We Celebrate 

Cultural Heritage Months enable us to create space to intentionally reflect upon the vibrant historical, social and cultural influence of the many different heritages of the people who work at Cox. We hope they build awareness, cultivate community and celebrate contributions to our culture, community and customers. These celebrations are another way we learn more about one another, learn to respect our differences and value every voice. #InclusionAtCox #LifeAtCox
