Kim Keever

When starting at Cox, Keever began teaching employees to prioritize concepts ranging from security and risk management to disaster recovery planning—and it’s paying off throughout the company. Next up, hiring new talent. “Cox is the best company I have worked at in terms of supporting women,” she notes. “We encourage participation in women’s support groups like WICT, Women’s ERG and WIT. We also encourage mentoring relationships and have active discussions about promoting women in talent forums.”

What specifically does your company do to support and elevate the women who work there?
Cox is the best company I have worked at in terms of supporting women. We encourage participation in women’s support groups like WICT, Women’s ERG and WIT. We also encourage mentoring relationships and have active discussions about promoting women in talent forums. These are real discussions, not just check the box.

What advice would you give your 13-year-old self?
Don’t worry so much about what people think of you. Be willing to be more of yourself and not like everyone else.

Which current shows best reflect the kind of women’s roles you like to see and why?
I am fascinated with female sportscasters and really enjoy watching them. I wonder if they feel like women in technology do because they are the minority of the population in the field.
