As an organization we stand against racism and discrimination in all forms as they undermine respect for individuals and the well-being and vitality of our communities. We strive to engage all community members, especially those whose voices have historically been marginalized. We will work with residents and public and private partners to co-create solutions that ensure everyone has the resources, supports, opportunities and networks they need to thrive with a hope of creating more equitable communities.
Diversity and Inclusion Statement
United Way of Tarrant County is committed to acknowledging and valuing the uniqueness of every employee and to creating an environment in which every individual’s strengths and abilities are included, developed and valued. All employees share in the responsibility for creating this environment, and are expected to demonstrate mutual respect and acceptance in the workplace. We believe that utilizing our employees’ individuality enhances communication, problem-solving and decision-making skills, thereby improving our overall productivity and performance. We also believe if our employees mirror the diverse make-up of our community, we will be able to better understand, and more effectively respond to, community needs. We strive for excellence in our ability to create an inclusive, respectful, and equitable environment for our employees through leadership, policies, and practices.
