Award Woman Of The Year

Nominate: Barbara Cox Woman of the Year

At Cox Automotive, diversity and inclusion is one of our core values. We’re committed to the advancement of women in automotive and we’re excited to award an outstanding leader who advances the industry and gives back to her community.

In 2005, we established the Barbara Cox Woman of the Year Award. The award is named after the late Barbara Cox, a business pioneer who was an Owner and Director of Cox Enterprises – Cox Automotive’s parent company. Barbara Cox was the daughter of the company’s founder, Governor James Cox, and the mother of its current chairman, Jim Kennedy. This annual award recognizes women who share the traits and accomplishments of its namesake.

If you know a leader like Barbara Cox who exemplifies a commitment to furthering the automotive industry, business leadership and is a community advocate, we encourage you to nominate her for the Barbara Cox Automotive Woman of the Year Award.

To be considered the nominee must:

  • Demonstrate strong contributions to their community over the past 12 months
  • Operate within the automotive industry at the manager level or above

As part of this award, a female Northwood University Automotive Marketing & Management student will be rewarded with a $10,000 Barbara Cox Memorial Scholarship on behalf of the honoree.

Congratulations to our 2020 Barbara Cox Woman of the Year!
