Jodi is currently undertaking her PhD with the Northern Institute at Charles Darwin University on mining and Indigenous livelihoods. Through an examination of the intersectionality of race and gender, Jodi’s research will examine how the stories and experiences of Indigenous women employed by large-scale mines in the Northern Territory of Australia can help reduce marginalisation and discrimination in the mining industry, and increase Indigenous female representation in the sector locally, nationally and globally.
