Cox and Delgado Present Small Business Leadership Academy

NEW ORLEANS – Cox Communications and Delgado Community College are partnering to host the fifth annual Small Business Leadership Academy. This program provides continuing education and leadership development to diverse suppliers in Louisiana.

The eight-week program is designed to teach small business owners how to scale their businesses and operate responsibly, with a focus on Cox suppliers from historically underrepresented groups. 

“Inclusivity has always been a fundamental guiding principle at Cox,” said Sunni LeBeouf, New Orleans market vice president, in a press release. “We look forward to continuing to work alongside Delgado Community College and the Small Business Leadership Academy in supporting the supply chain through empowering local entrepreneurs and investing in community.”

Delgado faculty-led program modules will be delivered in-person at the College’s River City Site in Avondale, La.

The program is open to all Cox suppliers and to non-suppliers, but requests from suppliers will be prioritized. Enrollment is limited to 30 participants. Participants who complete the program will earn continuing education units.

“The Small Business Leadership Academy from Delgado and Cox helped me grow my business,” said academy graduate Fabian Harper, owner of Flourish Horticulture. “The classes help you to get organized and bring structure to your operations.”
