About the Black Employee Network (BEN)

Inspired by the organization’s Women With Drive (WWD) ERG and developed early last year, the Black Employee Network is a Cox Automotive Canada ERG for any team member interested in better understanding and combatting anti-black and systemic racism. Through its three pillars of EducationCelebration and Inspiration, BEN will provide a safe and positive environment to discuss ideas and thoughts around inclusion and equality, and to play an active role in creating a better and more inclusive workplace and society for future generations. With its structure and goals now in place, more than 50 team members are already contributing to BEN’s efforts with several initiatives launching in the coming months. While Cox Automotive Canada is extremely proud of these efforts, the organization and its leaders realize that there is still much to be done where it relates to overall inclusivity, and encourages all Canadians to drive positive change in their own way, however big or small.
