Mission Statement

Women's Audio Mission is a San Francisco/Oakland 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.

Description

Women’s Audio Mission addresses two critical issues:

  1. Less than 5% of the people creating the sounds, music and media in the daily soundtrack of our lives are women/gender non-conforming (GNC) individuals.
  2. The alarming 70% decline in women/girls enrolling in college STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) programs since the year 2000.

WAM serves over 2,000 underserved women/girls/GNC individuals every year with STEM and creative technology studies that inspire them to amplify their voices and become the innovators of tomorrow. WAM’s award-winning curriculum weaves art and music with science, technology and computer programming and works to close the critical gender gap in creative technology careers.
