Cox's Diversity Commitment
Cox Communications of Virginia was the 2011 recipient of the Whitney M. Young, Jr. award, on Thursday, April 21, during the annual Urban League of Hampton Roads banquet, in Portsmouth. Gary McCollum, SVP & GM, accepted the award on behalf of Cox which was recognized as a national company who has made significant progress in diversifying its workforce at both management and non-management levels. This is a significant and prestigious honor extended in the past to companies such as Southwest Airlines and GEICO. This award honors the life and legacy of Mr. Whitney M. Young, Jr., a civil rights leader who spent most of his career working to end employment discrimination in the United States.
