The business of fashion is international, multi-cultural and diverse by nature. At Nordstrom, we believe this makes for an exciting retail environment and we value the richness it brings to our Company. One of the best ways we've found to provide excellent customer service is by ensuring we reflect the communities we serve. Having a workplace that attracts and supports diversity, benefits both our customers and our employees. We believe each of our employees has the opportunity to realize their potential and contribute to the success of our Company.

  • “To maintain a workforce that represents many backgrounds, while remaining deeply committed to cultivating an environment where the contributions of every employee, customer and vendor are valued and respected.”

“    Nordstrom is committed to the highest standards of ethics and business conduct. Those principles apply to our relationships with our fellow employees, our customers, our suppliers, our shareholders, our competitors, and the communities in which we operate. Further, those principles form the foundation of the corporate governance documents which are available here for your review.”- Blake W. Nordstrom, President
