Providing a Culture of Belonging for People…and Pets

Diversity and inclusion leader Morieka Johnson is passionate about creating safe, empowering environments for everyone.

Morieka Johnson has long appreciated the power of storytelling. A Georgia native, she grew up in a household where reading the day’s newspaper was an embraced tradition. “Being informed was part of our daily ritual,” she said.

After attending Emory University, Morieka combined that appreciation with a talent for writing, earning a job at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“I was so proud to finally get the call and work in a newsroom with such amazingly talented people,” she said.

After her time in journalism, Morieka joined Cox Media Group’s corporate communications team and later became a program manager for Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) at Cox Communications. Fast-forward to present day, and Morieka was recently promoted to a senior manager position on the D&I team.

“I’ve always had a passion for helping the company attract, retain, and – most importantly – advance talent,” Morieka said. “As Senior Manager for Diversity & Inclusion, I work with our employee resource groups, our regional councils, and our leaders across the country to make Cox an employer of choice. This role was a natural fit based on my communications background, and my love for employee growth and development across Cox.”

Morieka explained that in this role, she uses storytelling to show the business value of diversity and inclusion both internally and externally.

By managing all the Cox Communications employee resource groups (ERGs), Morieka is also helping Cox team members find community and opportunities to serve. At Cox Communications there are five employee resources groups supporting women, black and African American team members, Hispanic team members, LGBTQ+ team members, and early-career professionals. Across Cox we have two company-wide ERGs – Salute, supports our veterans across Cox and Lotus, empowers our Asian and Pacific Islander team members.

The ERGs offer programming and events that span the entire organization, and all employees are welcome to participate. During Morieka’s time as program manager, ERG membership increased more than 50 percent and D&I launched five new ERG chapters.

“Each ERG focuses on employee growth and development through a different lens, and I love being part of that conversation,” she said.

Outside of the office, Morieka is a loving dog mom to a French bulldog named Louie B. (who likes to snore loudly during her conference calls). But Morieka is more than a pet parent: she also uses her writing and communications chops to help animals.

“It started when I inherited a pitbull named Lulu,” she said. “After connecting with so many trainers and veterinarians over the years, I decided to write about my experience and help other first-time dog owners. That column appeared on MNN.com and has been re-purposed on CNN.com. I also created a few podcast episodes capturing those tips, and I occasionally contribute pet stories to the AJC.”

Morieka said that volunteering with pet organizations is also important to her.

“Right now, I volunteer for Ahimsa House,” she said. “This organization provides emergency housing and vet care to pet victims of domestic violence. It’s an amazing organization and I transport pets to boarding facilities when they need help.”

Morieka also loves to travel and has fond memories of trips to Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Greece, Italy, New Zealand, Germany, and Switzerland.

Venturing outside of the comfort zone is one of Morieka’s key pieces of advice for people who are eager to advance their careers.

“Learn the business and build a strong network,” she said. “Once you understand the demands of your role, step outside of your comfort zone and get to know people in other departments and business units. Many Cox employees have long tenures, so it’s highly likely that you will cross paths on future projects.”

In the world of diversity and inclusion, leading with kindness and positivity is especially important.

“Cox Communications CEO and President Pat Esser says that people want to follow optimistic leaders – that’s so true,” Morieka said. “I have been fortunate to work with optimistic leaders who remind me to focus on the positive. We work for a great company and even during times of crisis or change, it’s so important to keep things in perspective. Stay focused on the people in your life who matter most.”

Morieka has now been at Cox for over 15 years, and her enthusiasm for what she does is still palpable.  She is excited to see how diversity and inclusion at Cox will continue to grow.

“I love this role because I get to reinforce how diverse and inclusive workplaces drive business results, and that having them is simply the right thing to do,” she said.

5 Steps to Starting a Career in Digital Media

By Brittany Stephens

Cox Media Digital Media Analyst

I had a pretty unconventional start to my career path. After graduating from high school, I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with my life. I ended up getting a job as a reservationist with a vacation rental company in Gulf Shores, AL. The owner at the time was always helping people and giving us a space to grow. That’s when I realized Marketing was my true passion. Below are five of the key steps I took to pursue that passion and launch my career in digital media.

  1. Find a Mentor Who Believes in You

I attended the University of West Florida to gain a bachelor’s degree in Advertising with a minor in Marketing Applications. I was blessed to have an amazing college mentor, Sabrina McLaughlin, who gave me real-life marketing experience and never let me turn in subpar work. I remember showing her a personal branding project that I thought was complete, the day before it was due, she looked at me and said, “This is one hundred percent not you and you know it. Start over.” I was so frustrated, but I started over. I worked on it all night long and eventually came to a finished project that I used to help craft my resume for my application with Cox Media years later.

  1. Don’t Second Guess Your Talent

Just after my graduation, the company I had worked for a few years as a vacation reservationist was sold to new owners and sadly I was laid off. My college mentor Sabrina was aware of a position at Cox Media and immediately called me. I felt as though I was under-qualified for a Digital Media position, but I applied anyway and my current boss, Steve Allen, hired me as a Digital Media Specialist.

  1. Take Time to Learn the Business and Client Needs

I put all my effort into learning the digital business and processes and quickly added duties to my role with each new thing that I learned. What started as a fulfillment-only position quickly turned to an analyst role where I helped tell stories of success to our digital clients. With this transition, I was promoted to Digital Media Analyst. Cox Media gave me space and flexibility to develop my role by leveraging my strengths and growth areas. A typical day in my life as a Digital Media Analyst is WILD! It’s super fast-paced and I never live the same day twice. Every day I am responsible for monitoring campaigns, building campaign strategies, training Media Consultants (MC’s), and helping clients set up Google Analytics. I find true joy in assisting Media Consultants with anything that pops up during the day and helping them find success for their clients through digital strategies. I also meet virtually or in-person with clients and the Media Consultants to review their campaigns.

  1. Use Your Resources to Help You Grow

I was able to take part in the tuition assistance plan through Cox Media which was a huge help and was a weight lifted off my shoulders as I started the journey to achieve my master’s degree in Digital Media through Full Sail University. This was an accelerated program where everything you would typically learn in two years, I learned in a one-year program. The tuition assistance at Cox was much appreciated, but I would say what helped me the most through grad school was the Cox Media mentorship program. Once again in my life, I was lucky to be teamed up with one of the best mentors, Julie Fielding from the Omaha market. From day one of the mentorship program, Julie helped me grow. She’s helped me build a career path and has supported me in all areas of my life from juggling school to working 40 + hours a week.

  1. Make Relationships and Have Fun

Our Pensacola office truly embodies the culture of family and coming together to help each other out. Before I was in grad school, I was studying to take a certification test and I was so nervous that one of my coworkers used her lunch break to work through flashcards with me to make sure I was ready. We are always there for each other and it’s been so inspiring to see our “family” grow through this COVID-19 experience. We are all finding ways to help each other. You never hear the words, “that’s not my job,” instead you hear, “How can I help?” or “We’re all in this together!” That is the culture that I love, and it makes me want to always stay at Cox (see pictures of us celebrating together at holiday-themed parties).

Finally, to have my leaders and my peers give value to my work has been an experience like no other. Last year, I was recognized as the 2019 Unsung Hero for my market and I also received the Torch award. It meant everything to me because this is a company that cares, and they see the hard work and dedication I give to the company every day. It makes everything I’ve done in the past two years’ worth it. All the emails calls and texts I received from coworkers in my market and across the country had me in tears. I love to serve my market and help people out in any way I can.

    Describe what it’s like working for Cox Communications.

    Every day that I get to work with customers, I learn more about the power of listening. Customers just want to be heard. At Cox, we believe that if we connect with our consumers on an emotional level, then we are able to solve their problems. And by listening to my customers, that’s also how I can demonstrate the value of our products.

    Meaningful Connections

    Myriam Gomez, bilingual Retail Sales Associate for Cox Communications, shares an intercultural experience that she will never forget.

    One afternoon a customer of Persian descent walked into my Cox Communications solutions store for assistance. Our solutions store in Arizona is very diverse however we didn’t have anyone on the team who spoke Farsi. That’s when I grabbed a pen and paper, and he and I began to communicate. We were writing things down, pointing to the computer screens, and I used objects within the store to demonstrate. Even though we didn’t speak the same language, I found a way to connect with him and he left that afternoon feeling happy. That’s number one for us, we take care of our customers and he completed our consumer survey giving us a high rating.

    With Spanish being my first language, I couldn’t help but empathize with this customer. It wasn’t long ago that I struggled understanding English. When I was just eight years old my family and I came to the U.S. as immigrants. I grew up in California and started working at 17-years-old for a wireless phone company where I moved up, became a manager, and served for 10 years. I later got engaged to my fiancé Adrian and we decided to relocate to Arizona.

    It was a big adjustment to leave California, missing my friends, family and the sandy beaches but I took the time to work on developing my English-speaking skills. I wanted to feel most confident speaking with customers which is why I was so grateful to join Cox Communications.

    At Cox my team has been super positive about helping me with English. I also found great support in my manager Brian Lehmer. He’s a fantastic leader and when he sees potential, he believes in bringing out the best in people. In my role as Retail Sales Associate, I am grateful for the opportunity to work for a company like Cox that is so inclusive and diverse. My goal is to one day be a leader just like my manager Brian who has helped me become more comfortable and open minded to the opportunities at Cox. I love my job and would not change anything about my journey. I believe my career at Cox is off to a great start.

    Special thanks to Myriam for sharing her story. If you would like to be surrounded by a team of people who support both your personal and professional goals learn more about our opportunities at Cox.

      Day in the Life of an Account Executive

      Meet Kristina Hogins, Senior Enterprise Account Executive for Cox Business.

      Hi Kristina! Tell me a little bit about your background and what led you to your current job.

      I was born in Anchorage, AK and moved a lot growing up. I spent time in Orange County, North Carolina, and Sacramento. I moved to San Diego in 2005 to attend San Diego State University. I have planted my roots in San Diego (the weather and amazing people kept me here) and I call it home! I began my telecom sales career at a small company. They were hiring young college graduates willing to work hard and cold call 50 businesses a day. These skills allowed me to start a career in sales with Cox Business. I began as a Territory Rep and have worked my way up the chain by becoming a Mid-Market rep and now a Senior Enterprise Rep. This proves Cox Business believes in its employees and helps us grow and achieve our goals.

      What do you enjoy most about your job? How do you spend your time when you’re not at work?

      I enjoy the people I work with! We have an outstanding team that works together and delivers to our customers when they rely on us most. I’m proud to say I work at Cox Business, San Diego because of the people I’m surrounded by!

      When I’m not at work you can find me traveling or doing something active outside. This seems cliché but when you live in San Diego and the weather is always perfect you have to enjoy it. I love going to the beach, hiking, taking my Rottweiler (Max) to the dog park, and being social with friends. I got married 3 months ago (December 2017) and my husband and I went to Singapore and Bali for our Honeymoon. I love trying new foods, meeting new people, and exploring other cultures.

      How has Cox supported you in your career growth?

      Cox Business has always supported me in my career growth. They have sponsored networking groups and lead generating activities. All my managers and directors have an open-door policy so if I need coaching or advice they are always available to help.

        Khalil Al-Amir swinging a golf club

        3x sales champ reflects on his successes at work and at home

        Khalil Al-Amir, Cox Business Security Sales Manager, shares an inspiring story of courage and sacrifice plus the key Ingredients to his success.

        By: Khalil Al-Amir

        I was born in Syria, a beautiful country ripped apart by war. When I was just 5 years old, my parents, my two sisters, and I fled to Rhode Island. We already had some family arrive before us – my aunt and uncle and grandparents.

        My parents left friends, family, jobs, our home – everything – to give my sisters and me a better life, a safe life. Can you imagine what courage that took? My parents never speak of the sacrifices they made for us. But my sisters and I know, and we will never forget. It helps drive me every day.

        Beyond my courageous parents, I have been fortunate to have worked with great leaders at Cox. They encourage me, give me feedback, and like my father, push me to be and do my best.

        Sales has always been my passion, and developing talent has become another one as I grow into this leadership role.

        I’m a very competitive person, and every day, I’m inspired by the people around me. I think good salespeople must be like athletes, where the ultimate motivation is the desire to win and be the best.

        As Security Sales Manager, half my time is spent in the office doing admin work and meetings, but the other half is out in the field. I love being in the field! My time in the field allows me to meet potential clients and support my team.

        My secret sauce to success is to be good to your people, and they will be good for you. I have built mutual trust with my team that is needed in a sales environment.


        Khalil Al-Amir photo collage

        Back in Syria, my parents were very respected; they were teachers, which are very honored positions. When I got older, I remember working alongside my father as a landscaper. He taught me that whatever job you do, you give it your best, and be proud of what you are doing.

        That’s why I support my team where they need it most to make sure they have the autonomy to run their business.

        My mother also inspired me, she gave me my biggest motivation – always be positive! I do not allow myself to have a bad day. I live by the motto “if you can, change it; if you can’t, change your attitude about it.”

        I worked hard to achieve my goals, and my proudest accomplishment, on top of my successes that Cox offered me, is when I purchased a home.

        I have only been working at Cox for seven years. But in that time, I’ve received several promotions including three invitations to the Winner’s Circle, an annual awards ceremony recognizing high-achieving sales professionals with a great vacation trip. In my third year, I relocated to Las Vegas to help set up the Centers of Excellence, and shortly after, I received another promotion, bringing me home to Rhode Island. I mention these accomplishments to make my point  – you can achieve great things at Cox!

          Fatherhood Changed My Life

          How fatherly lessons changed Stephen Spinner’s outlook on life and how to make the best of any situation by boasting positivity, motivation, and selflessness.

          When your kids are born, you have unconditional love for them because they belong to you. But for Stephen Spinner, parenthood was a little different. He met Jose when he was 4-years-old after learning that Jose’s mother could no longer support him.

          Stephen stepped into fatherhood as a single parent to now, nine-year-old Jose. Stephen’s newly minted relationship with Jose helped strengthen his own relationship with his father, Charles. After a few short weeks of parenting turned into a few months, Jose lived with Stephen for a year. During this time Stephen taught Jose how to be respectful, how to enjoy the treasures of life, including vacationing to New Jersey, sight-seeing and visiting family. Jose also, like any kid, enjoyed video games and took on Karate as an afterschool activity. Stephen admits that during this time he developed a great relationship with his father which made him extremely happy.

          “The opportunity to help someone else gave me the greatest experiences of my life,” Stephen shared.

          After four years passed, Stephen lost his father Charles and Jose also left to reconcile with his mother. While these times brought a lot of grief, it did not stop Stephen from remaining positive and motivated to keep making a difference.

          “There are so many people less fortunate than I am, in more challenging circumstances, and with bigger struggles to overcome. I don’t have a good enough reason to be a negative person,” said Stephen.



          That’s when Stephen joined Cox Communications, starting out in the call center working on the retention team or “Saving Our Customers” team as he describes. However, it didn’t take long for him to realize that Sales is where he wanted to grow. Stephen is a part of the Multiple Dwelling Units Direct Sales team in Phoenix, Arizona. He has been working with Cox for two and a half years now.

          “I’ve always been more of a face-to-face person, so when I had the opportunity, I searched for different positions where I’d be able to deal more directly with customers.”

          Stephen’s experience at Cox has been quite memorable.

          “This is an amazing company to work for because my team is full of motivated and professional people. What makes the biggest difference to me is the leadership within the company. Every leader that I have reported to has been available to listen, help, and support.”

          Stephen goes on to share how the company has helped him to grow and appreciates the culture of open communication.

          “Knowing that my voice matters to the company I work for is a big deal. We are developing and producing services and technologies that are shaping the future of the industry, and it’s important that Cox is a forward-thinking company. We are always looking for ways to improve our products and make our name the industry standard.”

          Stephen’s upbeat personality and outlook on his career also carry over to his personal life. He strongly believes in staying positive and motivated in his health too. He is active in CrossFit, enjoys hiking and cycling, and plays basketball. On top of that, Stephen is very selfless and is always putting others before himself best modeling what Cox Stands for – doing the right thing, always and leading by example.

          Summer Social Team photo

          Want to know about the Cox SUMMER SOCIAL?

          The 2019 Cox Summer Social was sizzling this year as we got a crash course in esports and welcomed players, the head coach, costumed fans and the general manager from the Atlanta Reign.

          Our President and CEO Alex Taylor kicked off the Cox Summer Social with the introduction of our special guests the Overwatch League’s Atlanta Reign team, our company’s most recent investment. He shared how the team came about and admitted that he wasn’t sold initially on the idea of people watching other people play video games. But the more he learned about it, the more convinced he became that esports was on its way to becoming a booming industry. In fact, esports are predicted to have more viewers than every professional sports league but the NFL by 2021 — surpassing the MLB, NBA, NHL and MLS.

          An Esports Overview

          Soe Gschwind-Penski, a commentator, host and international celebrity in the gaming community, provided a quick overview of esports before hosting a brief discussion with our Chief Financial Officer Dallas Clement and our special guest, the President and CEO of Atlanta Esports Ventures Paul Hamilton. The discussion was about the journey of owning and operating our first esports team and our partnership with Province Inc. to form Atlanta Esports Ventures.

          Raving Fans

          Our event was decked out with vintage arcade games, while employees enjoyed ice cream on the outdoor lawn and more games under the tent. While others scored some free swag items, souvenirs and peeked inside the Atlanta Reign’s official team van. Fans also got a chance to meet Atlanta Reign players Babybay, Kodak and Gator, head coach Brad Rajani, and take pictures with cosplayers (costumed characters) from the Overwatch game.

          • “My favorite part about working at Cox is the incredible events they put on. I think they are such a great way to increase exposure to the company as well as the culture.” Sam Jobson, Cox Communications,
          • “During my time here at Cox, I have been lucky enough to encounter some of the nicest people I’ve ever met in my life.” Shujan Valiani, Cox Communications
          • “I like working at Cox because it’s family oriented, and they think of their employees. I tell other people to come and work at Cox because of the culture, we are so tight knit, and we try to make employees feel like family. I think it trickles down, which is so cool.” Mirlene Jean Simon, Manager of Economic & Industry Insights
          • “At Cox we are really good at building relationships, the comradery is what makes the company so great.” Karen Bass, Manager of Technology

          We couldn’t be more thrilled to kick off the summer in a big way for our employees and learn and celebrate our newest investments together.

            SECRETS FROM A SALES REP AT COX MEDIA

            Ever wonder what it’s like to lead a team of sales reps? Or perhaps you’ve been curious to know what sales leaders look for when they are hiring a new rep. We sat down with three advertising sales leaders from Cox Media, Inc. who lead teams of all sizes from different states to learn some of the secrets to their success.

            Cox Media, Inc. (CMI), is the advertising sales division of Cox Communications with locations across the U.S., and behind the success of this division is a force of sales representatives who find creative advertising solutions for their clients. Let’s meet Suzanne Banks-Russell, based in Mobile, Ala. who’s been with us four years; Baton Rouge-based and 13-year rep Dirk Hofman; and San Diego-based representative Maria McRoberts celebrating 20 years at Cox.

            What do you love about your job?

            Suzanne: Meeting a wide range of business people and helping them grow. We have a growing portfolio of solutions with something perfect for everyone, no matter the size, business type or budget. I also love how people-focused Cox is and our corporate values. I’m proud to work for Cox.

            Dirk: I love that every day is an adventure. The morning starts with a cup of coffee and then you never know where it will take you. In sales, we have no dull moments.

            How do you proactively delight your customers?

            Dirk: I try to stay relevant. If I send customers the same stuff all the time, I become part of the noise. I try to think ahead and make everything relevant to the customer.

            Maria: I remind my clients how much I appreciate their trust in me and how much I value our partnership. More importantly, I do this FACE TO FACE!

            What advice do you have for new members of the sales team? New employees, in general?

            Suzanne: Cox is an amazing company. Invest time in learning about our company’s history and corporate culture. Don’t rush past our training. You can’t be effective for your clients if you don’t understand our products and solutions.

            Dirk: Keep moving forward. Don’t get stuck in something you feel like you could have done better. I always tell new people that when they fail (and they will), Fail Forward. Make mistakes and learn from them. This is the best way to grow and succeed.

            Maria: Take advantage of our excellent company training programs and continue to be a life-long learner. Our company benefits are second-to-none. Sign up for everything and stay informed!

            How can non-sales employees help us to reach our sales goals?

            Suzanne: EVERYONE is a sales employee. Not everyone has face-to-face interaction with our customers, but they need to be ready. Non-sales-employees should take pride and ownership as much as anyone else. Everyone should be part of the goal. Whether it’s a new commercial, a new business popping up in your neighborhood or billboard, tell someone. Everyone can help.

            Maria: Non-Sales employees in our organization are some of our best and finest. I find that their ongoing support and encouragement is what makes our sales organization stand out and succeed.

            We’re not a ‘Dress Shirt and Tie’ Kind of Company

            Find out why that matters to Cox Communications employees Todd Tang and Bailey Young Smith, and why they say life at Cox is awesome.

            “When someone asks, ‘where do you work’ and I say Cox Media, their eyeballs seem to light up as I explain the portfolio of digital elements that we offer as a major company,” Advertising Account Executive Todd Tang said. “Yes, we are more than a TV and cable business; we offer digital advertising solutions too.”

            Cox Media, the advertising sales arm of Cox Communications, helps business owners of all sizes advertise through advanced cable TV and online digital solutions. It’s rewarding work, and one that helps not only the local business owner, but the community they serve. And Advertising Account Executives, like Todd, are on the front lines of that important work.

            “In our world, there’s a ton of collaborating,” said fellow Account Executive Bailey Young Smith. “We get to work with our marketing team, analysts and research teams, all based on our client needs.”

            That collaboration and knowledge sharing is important, and has been especially for Todd, who leaned on teammates like Bailey during his first few months with the company.

            So then, what brought Bailey to Cox initially?

            “I’m a longtime resident of Arizona and worked for other digital companies, tech startups and even a magazine,” Bailey shared. “But I felt like I had plateaued and there wasn’t much room for me to grow. When I began interviewing for my role at Cox, I was in the process of getting married. It was a very hectic time and while I wasn’t considering doing both a life and career change at once, it sort of happened that way and I’ve been here ever since.”

            With a great team atmosphere, lots of activities outside of work and a culture of giving back to the community, Cox Media provides tremendous opportunity for career growth and career satisfaction.

            “We’re not a dress shirt and tie kind of company, either,” Todd said, “and a lot of millennials love that lifestyle of flexibility and less formal attire. Millennials are starting to become the new sales force with their trending experiences in social and digital, and a lot of other employers don’t offer that culture.”

            “We have fun here,” Bailey chimed in. “We have an internal group called the People Focus Culture, and we celebrate fun holidays like Cookie Day or National Ice Cream day with in-office ice cream parties.”

            On any given day you can find Todd golfing, hiking or visiting restaurants with friends. Bailey looks forward to weekend bike-riding and brunching with friends at local, organic restaurants.

            And they both have their sights set on building successful, long-term careers at Cox.

            Special thanks to Bailey and Todd for sharing their stories. To learn more about life at Cox and opportunities at Cox Media, visit our career site today.
