About The 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 and the recording arts. In a field where women are 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 media technology for music, radio, film, television and the internet. WAM believes that women's mastery of music technology and inclusion in the production process will expand the vision and voice of media and popular culture.
The organization began at City College of San Francisco, where founder Terri Winston served as the director of the highly successful recording arts program from 2001 - 2011. Through word-of-mouth and an informal WAM peer mentoring program, women’s enrollment in CCSF’s recording arts program increased from 12% to 43% —the highest percentage of total enrollment in any recording arts institution in the U.S. Today, as an independent nonprofit entity, WAM’s goal is to share the best practices used to increase the enrollments of women and girls and support underserved girls and women with free and low-cost music production training and services, along with networking and mentorship opportunities.
Sonic Studio is delighted to partner with the Women's Audio Mission in helping to foster more information and experience for women interested in music production, editing and mastering careers. Click below to learn more.
