About the Team

The Head of Diversity & Inclusion will be launching & running the D&I function at Harrys. This critical leader will report into the Chief People Officer & be part of the broader People team. Our People team is highly respected by the business; we care deeply about the Harrys team & partner closely with leadership to drive innovation & create an environment where people feel a sense of belonging. Our team is global, so the Head of Diversity & Inclusion needs to think globally too by designing an approach that works for our US, UK & Germany teams.

About the Role

As the Head of Diversity & Inclusion, you will have a platform to have a significant impact on our business & our people. Over the last three years, Harrys 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 & are committed to doing even better in the future. We realize that in order to drive the change & progress we aspire to, we need a strong, dedicated team with real experience & expertise who can partner at the most senior levels of the organization.

Within this role, you will define & set the Diversity & Inclusion strategy across all aspects of the business - within our team internally, with our brands, with Harrys partner organizations, & 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 Harrys & are looking for an individual who can help us define that by getting input from across the company & getting buy-in at all levels of leadership.

You will be the first hire on the D&I team, but we expect you to grow the team quickly, based on your vision.

  • Launch diversity scorecards with teams, assessing current state & co-creating action plans with leaders, People Business Partners & 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 & partnerships

  • Represent Harrys externally, sharing your expertise & experiences through speaking engagements, panels, articles, etc.
  • Be a thought partner for People team & leaders - a go-to resource & coach for advice on D&I topics

  • Experienced Influencer. You know how to gain buy-in with the senior team (CEOs & their direct reports), driving excitement & buy-in to D&I efforts
  • D&I authority. You have a proven toolkit with thoughts, ideas, & experience to bring to bear across recruiting, training, working with teams, policies, etc.
  • Pragmatically innovative. You have a pragmatic approach to implementing D&I programs. You always want us to do the right thing & try new things. You couple that with an understanding of the practical considerations & nuances of running a global business
  • Data junky. You love to dig into data & pull out insights & tell stories
  • Delightful collaborator. You are someone people truly enjoy working with.You know how to influence others to get to the best outcome. You are also proactive & roll up your sleeves to take things on & get it done!
