On Thursday, December 7, Cox Enterprise’s Talent Acquisition (CTA) department sponsored and hosted the Georgia Diversity Council Year End Mixer on their campus. The Georgia Diversity Council (http://www.georgiadiversitycouncil.org/) is the state chapter under the National Diversity Council Organization (http://www.nationaldiversitycouncil.org/). Their mission: “To enhance appreciation for and understanding of the value of diversity and inclusion. We are committed to transforming our workplace communities into environments where people are valued for their uniqueness and differences, and are confident that their contributions matter”.

We had a great turnout at the event, with over 75 members in attendance. In addition to the wonderful turnout, the charity toy drive was a huge success as well. Eighty toys, games and winter gear were collected and will be given to the local Atlanta organization, Cool Girls, Inc. (http://thecoolgirls.org/).
