Today we announced that Erica Pedroza will serve as the career success manager for AgriNovus Indiana, a role aimed at fostering connections between academia and industry to attract next-generation talent to agbioscience careers.

Pedroza, who joins AgriNovus from the Indiana Minority Health Coalition, will lead AgriNovus’ career exploration platform, Field Atlas, and its on-campus student ambassador program; both resources that are designed to connect students to careers and companies hiring in traditional and allied agbioscience roles.

“AgriNovus has a bold ambition to grow Indiana’s agbioscience economy and attracting top talent to this industry is a critical requirement,” said Mitch Frazier, president and CEO of AgriNovus Indiana. “Erica’s award-winning experience in higher education and her commitment and engagement in the community make her a great addition to our team.”

She also served as an advisory board member for the Indiana Cancer Consortium and was on the Juvenile Violence Subcommittee of the Commission on Improving the Status of Children in Indiana.

Pedroza holds a bachelor of arts in political science from the University of Notre Dame and a masters of public health from the University of Indianapolis.

The addition of Pedroza to the AgriNovus team comes ahead of the fall school semester and a new class of Field Atlas Ambassadors. To learn more about Field Atlas, click here.
