Erin Monroe Wesley, Kristina Lagasse Sarai, and Raiza Pitre are three women who prove every day what it means to lead. In their leadership roles with Cox, they demonstrate how to live one’s truth while empowering peers to excel and modeling behavior that creates a true collaborative environment.

“I’m proud to work for a company that puts its people first and is committed to improving communities,” says Erin. A Shreveport native, Erin worked in the highest offices of state government before achieving her aspirational career role as a corporate executive in government affairs. Erin challenges her team to live Cox’s team culture: “Be Innovative. Be Bold. Be You.”

Unable to pursue schooling past eighth grade, Kristina’s Filipino mother impressed upon her daughters the importance of education. After graduating law school, Kristina joined Cox’s government affairs team.

“This position affords me the opportunity to advocate for our business, employees and customers,” she says. “It’s incredibly rewarding to take part in public policy discussions, especially when it comes to bridging the digital divide in our communities.”

Raiza credits her hardworking immigrant parents for her own tenacious work ethic. She began her journey at Cox 15 years ago and worked her way up to Agent Channel Manager. She helps businesses with their telecom needs and improving their efficiency. Raiza credits Cox’s mentorship programs in helping meet her personal and professional goals.

Together with the Cox team, these women champion inclusion and diversity, empowering one another to build a better future together.
