Supplier Diversity

Cox believes that diversity improves our business, strengthens our communities and contributes to the economic well-being of an increased number of businesses and their employees. We value and encourage the use of qualified minority-owned (MBE); women-owned (WBE); lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ); veteran, service disabled veterans, and disability businesses in our companywide purchasing process. We seek to form mutually beneficial partnerships with suppliers who offer high-quality products or services that are competitively priced and come with excellent customer service.

For the purpose of this program, a qualified business enterprise is defined as a business that is at least 51 percent owned, operated and controlled by one or more of the following groups, who are either U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents, and has its principal place of business (headquarters) in the United States. In the case of publicly owned businesses, a member or members of diverse groups below must own at least 51 percent of the stock.

  • Minority Groups (MBE) – A minority person is a member of the African American, Asian Pacific American, Hispanic American, Native American, and Asian-Indian Americans, and Alaskan ethnic group
  • Women-owned (WBE)
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual and Transgender (LGBTQ)
  • Disability (DOBE)
  • Veteran Disability-Owned (V-DOBE)
  • Service Disabled Veteran (SDV-DOBE)
The supplier diversity program is led and executed by the strategic sourcing and procurement team within supply chain management. Please reach out to with questions.
