Commitment to STEM

Science, Technology, Engineering & Math

Raven is dedicated to providing innovative, high-value products and solutions that solve great challenges throughout the world. More than half of our job positions at Raven are STEM-related, including manufacturing technicians, sales engineers, drafters, polymer chemists, computer and information specialists, financial experts, and an assortment of engineers, to name a few. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the number of STEM-related jobs will continue to increase over the next decade, which is why STEM education is so important to our nation and companies like Raven.

Making an Impact

At Raven, we are proactively investing in STEM education because we believe the need is great, and we believe we have excellent opportunities for students who are interested in STEM employment fields. Our vision and commitment to solve great challenges related to food, water, and security issues requires having team members who design, produce, and support innovative technology. However, Raven’s commitment to STEM goes beyond job opportunities. We support STEM education in our communities and schools by participating in STEM-related events, charitable giving, and hosting job shadow opportunities. We are especially committed to encouraging young girls and women to enter the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math because they are so underrepresented in these areas.
