Supporting marriage equality
Teachers Health is proud to express our support for marriage equality in Australia and are voicing our support via australianmarriageequality.org. At Teachers Health Fund we recognise the right for all employees, contractors and members to live and work free of prejudice and discrimination, including the right to marry the partner of their choice.
In addition, as part of our commitment to Diversity, Teachers Health supports activities that promote inclusion of all of our community. For example:
- Teachers Health is committed to gender equality and is one of the 76 organisations who have been awarded the inaugural WGEA Employer of Choice for Gender Equality citation.
- We remain proud to have been the first private health insurer to recognise same sex couples in terms of membership status over 20 years ago. Prior to this same sex couples could not take out a couple or a family membership.
- We continue to support the education and wider LGBTIQ community through events such as the Sydney Mardi Gras, Sydney Fair Day, Melbourne Midsumma, Adelaide Feast Festival and the Brisbane Pride Festival.
