Monash board member on honour roll

Monash Health board member Misty Jenkins has been inducted into the Victorian Honour Roll of Women.

Associate Professor Jenkins, an advocate for gender equity, Aboriginal health and education, was one of 32 names added to the Victorian Government’s honour roll for 2020.

A board member since November 2016, she serves on its quality committee and Aboriginal health strategic partnership committee.

Associate Professor Jenkins is a laboratory head at Walter and Eliza Hall Institute for Medical Research and a proud Gunditjmara woman who was the first Aboriginal Australian to attend the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge as a postdoctoral research fellow.

The Victorian Honour Roll of Women is an initiative of Women Victoria, recognising women who demonstrate remarkable leadership and excellence in their field, with more than 600 having been recognised since 2001.
