“I engaged Aimee McVeigh to prepare a report incorporating a gender perspective in work that I am undertaking about the impact of extractive industries on indigenous peoples. Aimee’s work demonstrated her understanding of human rights frameworks ­ particularly those specific to women and indigenous peoples. Aimee is easy to communicate with, her work was produced within tight timeframes and she was genuinely interested in the work that I engaged her to do.”
