Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging

We embrace a broad definition of diversity here at Harrods; from gender, sexuality, ethnicity, disability, background, and experience to other dimensions such as lifestyle and family responsibilities. Our goal is to increase the representation of all dimensions to reflect the customers we serve and the increasingly diverse and global marketplace we operate in. 

We believe ‘Diversity’ depends on inclusion. This starts with creating a safe space and enabling everyone to be seen, heard, valued, and respected for the person they are and the uniqueness they bring. Inclusion also means being attentive to fairness and enabling everyone to contribute at their full potential to create a feeling of community and belonging in our colleagues.

This Is Me: James

James' Story

I’m James Moore, Group Marketing Manager at Harrods for Beauty, Interiors, Food and Drink, and I’m Vice-Chair of our Harrods LGBTQ+ Network. Growing up gay for me was a difficult experience. Honestly, a lonely experience. I didn’t feel I fit in. I didn’t always feel I had someone to share my experience with. The support system at Harrods has been unexpected and amazing. I found the opportunity to speak to many people in the LGBTQ+ network, which has been so important - to learn, discover and share our experiences as a connected community. Some of my proudest moments at Harrods have been linked to launching the LGBTQ+ network - it’s been so rewarding to share my story but also to hear other people’s stories, and utilise our collective experiences to challenge, change, create and collaborate. If I could speak to my younger self, I’d say I know that you feel sometimes lonely, sometimes confused, and sometimes unsure. You will have a fantastic opportunity coming up to meet lots of people, find your voice but also find the voices of others, and celebrate that this is me, this is you, and everything that we are supposed to be.

This Is Me: Sharon

Sharon's Story

I'm Sharon, I'm the Digital Content Specialist here at Harrods and normally I'm on the other side of the camera. At the age of eight, my whole life changed and I didn’t think I was able to live what I thought was a ‘normal life.’ I was told constantly by society to live in fear; fear that I will never achieve what ‘normal people’ would be able to achieve. But do you know what? I still have the same, if not more; drive, passion and ambition for what I do, my future, my dreams and my goals, I feel like if anything, it's given me the strength that I need to do anything without fear and that is one thing that makes me me.
