Fort Worth listed among 20 organizations that value diversity

Posted Nov. 22, 2017

Connecting with like-minded peers is great, but there’s also a lot to be said for getting to know co-workers from different backgrounds and walks of life.

The City of Fort Worth is one of 20 employers that see the value in that very thing, according to Muse.com, an online career source for the millennials (ages 18-34).

Fort Worth was honored for championing diversity and fostering a culture of inclusivity.

“One of the fastest growing cities in the nation, Fort Worth offers all the educational information and activities residents require to live a happy, healthy life in the cool community,” the website stated.

“This organization finds it easy to celebrate diversity—it takes a cue from the city itself, which is extremely diverse. As a city with an average age of just 31.6 years old, Fort Worth is a vibrant and lively community that people love to call home. City of Forth Worth employees love their time in the office just as much — thanks to their supportive colleagues.”
