Diversity + Inclusion

We are all different + different is better

It is our belief that every person has the right to better health and we work hard to ensure we deliver this to the community. We also recognise that the health market is changing, and along with it, the expectations of our people, our customers, our shareholders and our communities. Supporting diversity and inclusion at Medibank is part of our DNA, and helps us to serve our customer better and be more competitive.

At Medibank, we want to be known for having a diverse workforce and for valuing the difference.

We recognise that we have a unique mix of commercial, clinical and customer facing employees from a diverse range of backgrounds. Each employee represents different life experiences, skills, abilities, gender, age, ethnicity, religious and cultural background, family status and sexual orientation. We are all different, and we know these differences create organisational benefits.

Bring your whole self to work, where we can be better together.

Don’t just recognise bias. Start challenging it.

At Medibank, we recognise the importance of diversity and inclusion. Both in the value it brings to our business and in how good it feels to be accepted for who you are at work. However, we also recognise that bias exists, and we know we can get better at calling it out.

It’s important to challenge bias in the moment. Even though it can be confronting, it’s important to speak out when you see or hear unacceptable behaviour. More than that, it’s important to support others when they challenge it. To do otherwise normalises the mindsets and behaviours that leave people isolated. It’s down to all of us to call out bias and create an inclusive workplace. Will you?
