Medical Developments International Limited (MDI) is committed to workplace diversity.
MDI recognises the benefits of diversity where people from different backgrounds can bring fresh ideas and perceptions which make the way work is done more efficient; and products and services more valued.
Diversity includes, but is not limited to, gender, age, ethnicity, religion and cultural background. Diversity also encompasses the many ways people differ in terms of their education, life experience, job function, work experience, personality, location, marital status and carer responsibilities. Diversity at MDI is about the commitment to equality and the treating of all individuals with respect.
MDI understands that the wide array of perspectives resulting from such diversity promotes innovation and business success which creates value for our customers and shareholders.
To the extent practicable, MDI will address the recommendations and guidance provided in the ASX Corporate Governance Council’s Corporate Governance Principles and Recommendations (ASX Principles).

MDI has an own employment related policy, and this Diversity Policy complements that existing documentation.
