Women's Audio Mission

Women's Audio Mission is a San Francisco based, non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of women in music production, professional audio and the recording arts. In a field where women are chronically under-represented (less than 5%), WAM seeks to "change the face of sound" by providing hands-on training, experience, career counseling and job placement to women and girls in music and media technology for music, radio, film, television and the internet. WAM believes that women's mastery of professional audio technology and inclusion in the production process will expand the vision and voice of media and popular culture.
