Raven Baxter

Raven Baxter, also known as the Science Maven, will inspire us to think about how to foster change in STEM culture and beyond — through self-awareness, music, and being your unapologetic self!

Raven Baxter is a science communicator and Ph.D. student from Buffalo, New York, also known as Raven the Science Maven.

Currently, Raven researches the relationship between the media representation of scientists and how adults identify with science. As a musician, Raven is known for her unique ways of blending science and hip-hop, drawing from her experiences as a corporate molecular research scientist, biology professor, and college advisor, to create fun and relatable music that educates while sending positive messages into the STEM community.

In her journey, she overcame racial and gender barriers that altered the focus of her mission towards amplifying the voices and work of STEM ambassadors. She founded STEMbassy, a STEM advocacy organization focused on showcasing diversity in action, and hosts a live talk show highlighting current events impacting the field. Raven highlights what is missing in STEM culture and encourages others to use their voices for inspiring change.
