ATLANTA, June 11, 2020 /3BL Media/– Cox Communications, the largest private telecom company in the U.S. and pioneer of gigabit broadband to homes and businesses, earned the No. 17 spot on the 2020 DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list. This marks the fifteenth time the company has been recognized among the nation’s top corporations for its diversity practices, reinforcing Cox’s longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion. Cox was also specifically recognized as a top company for LGBTQ employees, and ranked No. 11 for supplier diversity.
At Cox, we have felt the pain and anguish of the communities where we do business and our nation over the past week.
People should not live their lives in fear, simply because of the color of their skin. We know African-Americans, including many of our own employees, are afraid for their lives and the lives of their children. No one should have to raise a child in fear. No one should suffer mental anguish, physical violence, or death – such as in the case of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor or countless others before them – because of racism and discrimination.
Connecting our communities with accurate, in-depth information has never been more important than it is now and will be in the days to come. It is with equal parts awe and gratitude that we acknowledge the efforts of our people at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution who are tirelessly pressing on to inform and empower readers from their homes, the front lines and beyond during these unprecedented times.
