Career agility with Dr Penny Schultz
In this evokeAG x Humans of Agriculture collaboration podcast, with Oli Le Lievre, Oli chats with Dr Penny Schulz, who never thought she'd end up working in ag. Now the owner of a beef and sheep farm in Field, in the Coorong region of South Australia, listen to Penny talk about the trajectory of her career, and how her home state is becoming the epicentre of agritech innovation.
This week we bring you another evokeAG x Humans of Agriculture collaboration podcast, with Oli Le Lievre.
Dr Penny Schulz, despite never imagining she’d end up in agriculture, has become a champion for the sector – researcher, university lecturer, industry advocate, agritech entrepreneur and most recently, evokeAG Steering Committee member.
Penny is a previous winner of the Rural Women’s Award (South Australia, 2014) and has a PhD in Rural Science from the University of New England (UNE) where she investigated the adoption of app technology by livestock producers. She is now the Livestock Production Specialist Adoption Officer for the University of Adelaide.
Penny credits her broad career to the fact that the ag sector by definition is not “set in stone, it’s not prescriptive. In technology development it’s called being agile, and with careers in ag you can change and build skills and take up opportunities”.
We hope you enjoy this conversation.
