About the Team
The Head of Diversity and Inclusion will be launching and running the D&I function at Harry’s. This critical leader will report into the Chief People Officer and be part of the broader People team. Our People team is highly respected by the business; we care deeply about the Harry’s team and partner closely with leadership to drive innovation and create an environment where people feel a sense of belonging.

About the Role
As the Head of Diversity and Inclusion, you will have a platform to have a significant impact on our business and our people. Over the last three years, Harry’s has made progress on some D&I initiatives - from sourcing practices to progressive policies to ERGs. However, we have not done enough to support D&I across our teams and are committed to doing even better in the future. We realize that in order to drive the change and progress we aspire to, we need a strong, dedicated team with real experience and expertise who can partner at the most senior levels of the organization.
Within this role, you will define and set the Diversity and Inclusion strategy across all aspects of the business - within our team internally, with our brands, with Harry’s partner organizations, and how we show up in the world externally. While we believe an initial focus on our internal team is important, we are looking for a leader who is excited to think about D&I across all aspects of our business. We want to set a bold ambition for D&I at Harry’s and are looking for an individual who can help us define that by getting input from across the company and getting buy-in at all levels of leadership.

- Launch ‘diversity scorecards’ with teams, assessing current state and co-creating action plans with leaders, People Business Partners and Recruiting
- Build outstanding training programs, creating content based on your expertise, in partnership with our Learning & Development team
- Influence how our brands show up in the world, providing input into brand positioning, marketing campaigns and partnerships
