Jodie Hon, Innovation & STEM Manager

Engineer | P. Eng

Jodie started her career as a young engineer in the oil and gas industry. Around the same time, she started exploring the mountains and lakes around Alberta and BC through a variety of activities. After over three years in this field, driven by her love of the natural world, she decided to make the switch to the sustainability industry. She spent four years working on the design and construction of low-carbon district energy systems using technologies such as geo-exchange and waste heat recovery. Upon discovering Iron & Earth, she realized she could help others make the same meaningful transition that she did.  She’s excited to help build the Climate Career Portal, among other important projects with Iron & Earth.

Iron & Earth is committed to partnering with Indigenous workers to empower their communities to become self-sufficient in training programs, clean energy transition projects, and employment opportunities to combat environmental racism. It falls to all of us to continue the work of healing and reconciliation in our communities and our organizations. Our relationship with the land and the people who live here shapes who we are. It is in the spirit of reconciliation and honouring the past that we recognize treaties and agreements wherever they are and wherever we work.

We also acknowledge all peoples who live, work, and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
As individuals and teams we may make mistakes along the way, but we are dedicated to growth, openness, compassion, and forgiveness. These principles in our work are essential to building successful and healthy relationships with individuals, communities, organizations, and governments.

We look forward to building a path to lead us to a better relationship with Indigenous nations and the environment around us based on peace, friendship, and respect.
