On the Donor Tracker team, Zoe Johnson leads the planning and coordination for donor profile updates, analyzes and writes about development policy and financing in Australia and Canada, and is involved in editorial oversight for the Donor Tracker website.
Before joining SEEK, Zoe worked for the Oxford Martin Programme on African Governance, where she led research in Ethiopia exploring young women’s expectations and experiences of work and life in the Hawassa Industrial Park. In addition, she worked as the editorial assistant for two peer-reviewed journals: Oxford Development Studies and the Journal of Gender, Agriculture, and Food Security. Zoe gained further experience working as an EdGE mentor and consultant with Omprakash, mentoring students from around the world, and working with grassroots organizations in Uganda, Costa Rica, Chile, India, and Cambodia.
Zoe is a graduate from the MPhil in Development Studies at the University of Oxford, where her research critically explored how processes of social, economic, and political change in Ethiopia shape young women’s perceptions of their own opportunities. She also holds a BSc in Global Resource Systems from the University of British Columbia.
