Diversity, equity and inclusion at Medavie Health Services
At Medavie, our mission is to improve the wellbeing of Canadians. To get there, we will foster a culture where everyone is enabled to achieve their full potential — a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) where we live our values every day in the way we treat each other, our members and the communities we serve.
“We are striving to build a culture where we demonstrate our values of Caring, Accountable, Responsive, Innovative and Community-Minded in our words and in our actions every day.”Medavie CEO Bernard Lord
The culture we embrace will become part of everything we do — whether it be offering inclusive benefit options to our clients, investing in community-based initiatives that strengthen access to wellbeing or in treating everyone we employ and serve fairly and with respect.
“Diversity, equity and inclusion are essential to the work we do in protecting the health and safety of Canadians. It means accepting and respecting everyone as they are and providing quality care to all.”Medavie Health Services President Erik Sande
To be the best we can be, we have a dedicated working group, made up of senior leaders and employees from across the company, developing an overall DEI strategy for the organization, chaired by our CEO.
This strategy will elevate the many activities we already have underway including ensuring all our member touchpoints use inclusive language and choices, developing inclusive benefits, engaging our employees and partners in important conversations around DEI and investing in communities that face barriers and inequities.
Our mission and our values, together with our vision to be a leading and trusted health solutions partner, will form the north star that guides and inspires our diversity, equity and inclusion journey in meaningful and impactful ways.
We’re proud to be an Employer Partner of the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion (CCDI).
