Diversity and inclusion is a Cox value and business imperative. We must reflect the customers that we serve in order to understand their needs and deliver products that meet those needs. As such, diversity and inclusion at Cox extends beyond traditional definitions of gender or ethnicity to encompass a full spectrum of different viewpoints, perspectives and experiences.
Our approach to diversity and inclusion is a comprehensive one that spans four pillars: people, community, suppliers and customers. This strategy helps to ensure that we are not only inclusive in hiring and retaining employees, but also in our supplier relationships, community outreach and the products and services we offer.
We execute this strategy through a variety of processes and programs throughout the company. A corporate-level Cox Diversity and Inclusion Practitioner Group helps facilitate the sharing of best practices among and within each of our businesses, all of which execute their own diversity programs. Some highlights include:
