Women’s Audio Mission (WAM) is proud to partner with mission-aligned corporations in unique ways, including special events, behind-the-scenes tours, shadowing opportunities for our interns and members, networking and mentorship opportunities, promotional partnerships for audio gear, and more.

1. Maximize impact with a donation or grant.
Corporations offer WAM funding through their CSR, Social Impact or Diversity & Inclusion teams. Our award-winning programs train women and girls in STEM and creative technology, creating a diverse pipeline of skilled workers from which they hire. All donations to WAM are tax deductible and many employers offer matching funds, allowing for double the impact! Did you know an estimated $4-7 billion in matching funds goes unclaimed every year?
2. Sponsor an event or conference.
Enjoy opportunities to network with other high-profile sponsors and industry professionals, elevate company expertise through workshop and panel participation, and position your brand as a leader, advancing gender equity in the industry. Benefits also include exposure to our 30,000+ social media followers. WAM’s recording arts conferences for women take place in U.S. music cities and will travel to New York and Los Angeles in 2020.
