In the past year Cox ramped its Market Expansion team to ensure it had the process in place to access federal grant dollars to bridge the digital divide while advocating for communities. Langner also is proud of how Cox empowers women in non-traditional roles, hiring, training and mentoring women through programs like “MentorUp” and “Unbound.”

“Early in my career success was more ‘me’ driven and how was I achieving that next step up. I quickly learned there was no ‘I’ in “TEAM” and I moved to ‘we.’ Success to me today is being proud of the accomplishments of my team and colleagues and the impact we have in the communities where we do business.”

Quote I draw inspiration from: “What good is an idea if it remains an idea? Try. Experiment. Iterate. Fail. Try again. Change the World.” – Simon Sinek

Philanthropic event I look forward to every year: I am on the Board of Directors for Adaptive Spirit and I look forward to our Annual Event in Vail, Colorado. This is a wonderful event where we raise funds for the U.S. Paralympics to benefit the remarkable athleticism and competitive spirit of the U.S. Paralympics Ski and Snowboard Team. Through donations, the team has the opportunity to remain the top adaptive ski team in the world. From the telecom industry’s generosity, millions have been raised over the years, touching thousands of lives.
