Maggie Jones is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Victoria. Her research focusses on understanding the impacts of historical and contemporary policies on the labour market outcomes of marginalized communities and individuals, with a particular focus on these issues in relation to Indigenous populations. Her 2018 PhD dissertation, which evaluated the impact of federal education policies on educational attainment among Indigenous populations, was funded by a SSHRC doctoral award. Her recent work in this area includes an evaluation of the Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training Strategy, a demand-driven suite of labour market interventions designed for Indigenous peoples. In addition to her academic work, she has several years of experience in economic consulting for Big River Analytics, an economic consulting firm that works primarily with Indigenous nations and organizations. More recently, her work on firm-level discrimination against African Americans in the United States was funded by the National Science Foundation.
