“Despite all the women singers you can think of, less than 5% of the people working in the field of music production & recording arts are women—Women’s Audio Mission is changing that, one student at a time.”

This has long been an issue in the audio industry, so much so that several groups have formed arround the world to assist women in audio careers.
Women’s Audio Mission is an international organisation based in San Francisco that aims to assist anyone who is woman-identified (transgender or cisgender), non-binary, or gender non-conforming and wants to work with sound.
