Cogent recognizes that cultural diversity in the workplace is not just a trend to be acknowledged, but as an advantage to be embraced that will lead to the company’s success.

Diversity allows for fresh perspectives which remove limitations to innovation. For this mindset, Cogent was the proud recipient of DCRS Award at the 17th Annual Cultural DIVERSEcity Awards for Business. In being an equal opportunity employer, Cogent brings the strength of diversity to the company and creates jobs for people in the community.



Cogent believes that local community involvement from businesses is instrumental in the growth of the city and its surrounding areas. To respond to the call for increased corporate responsibility, Cogent has created the Cogent Cares Program.

This program aims to increase awareness among employees about the triple bottom line concept (economic, environmental and social responsibility) and help foster action in the workplace and community. The Cogent Cares Program proudly supports the Richmond Food Bank, Red Cross, World Vision and Engineers Without Borders, among others.
