In celebration of Women's History Month, female leaders from across Cox Enterprises are sharing insights from their experience throughout the month of March. Marybeth Leamer is executive vice president of human resources and administration for Cox Enterprises.


Do you think it is important for companies to help develop female leaders?

Yes, it’s important to work with a company that focuses on women and minorities. That’s something that Cox has been doing for decades. I’m proud that we’ve made some great progress putting women in senior level roles, but I will also say we have a ways to go.


What will be the biggest challenge and opportunity for the generation of women that follow you?

We expect Cox will double or even triple in size during the next 20 years – no doubt, this will be the most significant growth period in our company’s history. For all our employees, women and men, this brings immense opportunity. At Cox, your career is only limited by the number of jobs we have throughout any of the businesses we own today or that we may own in the future. I think that’s an incredible value proposition for the employees who follow me.


How has Cox helped you grow your career?

Great companies never change who they are, their soul or their values. Our core values have been a part of this company since 1898. That’s what makes Cox so great. I believe this commitment is what differentiates Cox from other great companies and what has made a difference in my own career.


What career advice do you have for others?

If you are not 100 percent ready for a position, then that is the best place to go. It builds confidence, and even more importantly, it builds a track record that says to the organization you’re willing to take risks with your career.
