Special Project NEW!

United By Our Uniqueness: Black and African American

Entered in Racial Equality

Objective

UNITED BY OUR UNIQUENESS is an internal and external brand campaign, for Cox Enterprises, that focuses on celebrating our diverse talent communities. Throughout the year, we showcase honest conversations and the authentic experiences of our employees, so we live our promise of letting every voice be heard as we continue to champion a culture of safety, listening and belonging. 

This particular UBOU campaign activation celebrates the rich culture and heritage of the Black community. For this activation, Black/African American Cox employees will tell their authentic experiences of how they celebrate their heritage from a 1st person account. In amplifying these stories, we are conveying the sense of belonging and respect Cox creates for all its employees.
