The goal to bring more female-identifying individuals into the audio industry has been the driving force behind the Women's Audio Mission since it was founded over 15 years ago. Formed by Executive Director Terri Winston at City College of San Francisco, the organization essentially began as a small club with around 15 participants.
In the time since their initial meetings, Winston has created something incredible. She has worked to create the only professional recording studio in the world completely built and run by women. With an impressive home base featuring state-of-the-art gear from Avid, Barefoot Sound and Audient, WAM has been able to provide audio training and work experience to over 1,500 women and girls from the Bay Area and beyond.
Recently, we were fortunate enough to journey up to San Francisco and visit with Winston and her staff at the WAM studio.
