The John C Harsanyi Medal for innovation

Dr Vimallan Manokara is the Head of MINDS (Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore) Institute, driving applied research and innovation in disability services.

Vimallan completed a Doctor of Philosphy (Medicine) degree. His thesis topic, “The Framework of Sustainable Employment for People with Disabilities”, attracted strong interest from colleagues in the International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IASSIDD). It led to an invitation to take a leadership role in the establishment of a Special Interest Research Group on Employment, where he built a team of young disability researchers informing disability policy formulation.

Vimallan worked collaboratively at the national level with various government agencies to lead the Inclusive Health Care and the Inclusive Community Living pilot projects for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). Additionally, he led the establishment of the Disability Research Coalition with support from the National Council of Social Services (NCSS) to drive research and innovation across the disability sector in Singapore. One such work is the development of a social inclusion index to measure the extent the social inclusion needle for People with IDD has shifted nationally and within specific communities. He also led the initiative to establish Singapore’s first Self-Advocacy Project for people with IDD which will be replicated across other disability support organisations.

Vimallan played a key role in concpetualising and driving a number of initiatives which aligned to key focus areas under Singapore’s 3rd Disability Enabling Master Plan. This includes building a research base that informs policies including Quality of Life measurement, development of inclusive employment options, transition from school, focus on lifelong learning for People with IDD, synergise partnerships between, health education and social services, as well as improving data collection and analytics to inform service transformation and enhancement for People with IDD.

The Sister Alison Bush Medal for contribution to Indigenous community

Michael Mossman delivered successful and award-winning architectural projects during his long-standing appointment with the NSW Government Architect. His growing reputation and impact on academia and the profession is a credit to his advocacy of First Nations concerns in the designed environment.

On appointment to the University of Sydney, Michael initiated and continues research and teaching-based involvement with the Indigenous community of Yarrabah, QLD. He was appointed Associate Dean Indigenous in the School of Architecture in 2020 and is one of only a handful of Indigenous architecture PhD graduates in the country. Since his appointment, he has reimagined the delivery of core units across the school, at the same time, he completed a PhD.

Michael helped build capacity across the School for assessments and teaching material that foreground First Nations perspectives and brought an extensive Indigenous design network to the School, capitalising on it to strategic effect through exhibition, seminar, workshop and publication initiatives such as the de-colonial Our Voices project.

Beyond the University, Michael has leveraged his academic position to engage with industry and the profession as Co-Chair of the Australian Institute of Architects' (AIA) Reconciliation Working Group since 2018. In that role, he initiated the preparation of a Reconciliation Action Plan.
