The Minority Corporate Counsel Association has named Cox Communications Inc. an “Employer of Choice.”

The MCCA said the MSO was recognized for the diversity initiatives and inclusive policies of Cox's corporate legal department.

Cox senior vice president of legal and regulatory affairs Jim Hatcher will accept the honor at the MCCA’s South/Southwest region Diversity Dinner in Dallas Thursday.

“Cox has long embraced the principle of respecting all people and treating everybody fairly, far before we had any formal diversity policies," Hatcher said in a prepared statement.

“Our commitment to respecting and honoring diversity simply stems from our desire to do what we all know is the right thing,” he added. “I'm honored to accept the MCCA award on behalf of the employees of Cox Communications and our legal and regulatory department, who do their best each and every day to just do what's right."
