Diversity prize for Head of Biophotonics
Dr Frederique Vanholsbeeck was awarded the OSA Diversity & Inclusion Advocacy award in Washington in September 2018.
The award recognises outstanding dedication and accomplishments from organisations and individuals that foster greater appreciation, advancement, and celebration of diversity and inclusivity in optics and photonics.
Australian Optical Society president Professor Simon Fleming said he was delighted the prize was awarded to Dr Vanholsbeeck.
“This award is based not only on her influence on the practices of the University but also more generally on New Zealand and Australia science in helping promote a positive image to a wide diversity of students.”
