Raven is dedicated to providing innovative, high-value products and solutions that solve 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 number of STEM-related jobs is steadily increasing in all industries, which is why STEM education is so important to our growing world.
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 challenges 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.
As we continue to be competitive and solve the next great challenges, it will be critical to continue to equalize the gender gap. Gender diversity not only makes us more inclusive, it makes us more creative and innovative by expanding our viewpoints.— Emily Wegner, Plant Manager
