Why It's Important to Us

Why It's Important to Us

At Cox, we have a long history of championing inclusion, diversity and civic engagement – it’s part of doing the right thing, always. In 2020, Cox marked the 100th anniversary of Gov. James M. Cox, our founder, running for president (with Franklin Delano Roosevelt as his running mate!). A tradition of patriotism and civic duty runs through our roots. Gov. Cox's commitment remains the foundation of our values today and is reflected in our purpose: Empower People Today to Build a Better Future for the Next Generation. 

Your Vote Is Your Voice. Make It Count.

Your Vote Is Your Voice. Make It Count.

Cox partners with nonpartisan groups such as Rock the Vote and the Vote Safe 2020 initiative to encourage our employees and our communities to get involved, register and vote. Along with 700 U.S. businesses, Cox showed its commitment to the Time to Vote Pledge by providing all full-time exempt and nonexempt employees up to six hours per year to vote in federal, state and local elections and primaries.

Through the support of our civic engagement partnerships, we are working towards building an inclusive and welcoming culture by making sure everyone has the chance to make their voice heard. We want every person to feel empowered to stand up for what they believe is right — whether part of the Cox family or not.
