Carrie Engelbrecht, a technical project engineer at Cox Communications is showing her support for STEAM by dedicating her time to nonprofit groups like 48in48, Girls Inc. and the STEM Alliance.
Engelbrecht has been with Cox Communications for almost five years and holds the important role of project manager for our 48in48 program. 48in48 is a global event initiative where volunteers pool their talents to help build websites for nonprofit organizations.
In October, Cox employees from across the enterprise built 63 nonprofit websites in 48 hours. Employees in 16 different time zones — including 21 participants from all Cox divisions — volunteered a total of 16,800 hours.
When it comes to Cox’s efforts in STEAM, Engelbrecht is proud to work for a company that is dedicated to improving the world for the next generation.
“I love everything about working at Cox,” Engelbrecht said. “It’s not about us today, but about the legacy we leave behind. I like the investment Cox makes and opportunities we have to be engaged in our communities.”
Engelbrecht tries to instill the motivation and passion she has for STEAM in her 15-year-old son.
“I want to inspire my son to be prepared for today’s job market,” Engelbrecht said. “There’s no way to avoid STEAM. I don’t want to be the mom that doesn’t understand the technology my son uses. I want to help make it fun and exciting for him to learn.”
Through the resources and opportunities available on Cox Impact, our internal employee engagement platform, Engelbrecht has found ways to use her skill set to make her mark on the STEAM community.
