McDonald has represented more than 500 tribes in the U.S. on national policy issues related to education, labor market training and skills acquisition for disadvantaged populations along with economic, community and jurisdictional development. McDonald has also been responsible for presentations and research related to Indigenous issues in Australia, New Zealand, Russia and Malaysia and has been responsible for facilitating collaborative efforts with global partners that include the World Health Organization and United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous issues.
