Professor Richelle Mychasiuk won the 2022 Dean's Award for
Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion
From Professor Helmut Butzkueven, Head, Department of Neuroscience

It gives me great pleasure to share with you all the wonderful news that one of our outstanding academic leaders, Professor Richelle Mychasiuk, has been recognised by the Monash Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.

Professor Mychasiuk received the Dean's award for Excellence for her research and service in the category of Diversity and Inclusion at the awards ceremony on 10 October 2022.

Massive congratulations to Professor Mychasiuk, we are enormously proud of you and so grateful to have you as part of our department!

She has established monthly Women in STEM workshops in the department developing female-centric strategies to overcome barriers to success in academia. Her leadership is creating an opportunity to connect all female staff on difficult and sensitive discussions to inform gender equity at the CCS.
"It's not about one person doing one big thing...it's about a lot of people, doing many small things, that actually makes a difference!

"Thanks to everyone for helping to pave this road," said Professor Mychasiuk.

Professor Christina Mitchell AO, Dean of Monash University's Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, congratulated all the award winners.

“Thanks to the commitment of our staff, our Faculty is confident, ambitious and continuing to achieve excellence, as evidenced by the growth in our student numbers, research revenue and partnerships. We are a team of positive, supportive and collaborative professionals, and it is my absolute pleasure to recognise excellence through these awards.”

Please extend your congratulations to Professor Mychasiuk on this momentous award and recognition.
