Women’s Audio Mission gains support from Neutrik
Neutrik is showing its support for increasing opportunities for women in the audio engineering industry by donating an assortment of its connectors to the Women’s Audio Mission (WAM). An international, nonprofit, women-run organization based in San Francisco, WAM is dedicated to the advancement of female audio engineers.
In a field where women comprise less than 5 percent of its professionals, WAM seeks to create an environment that will encourage and enable the aspirations of women in professional audio. Through its workshops, WAM introduces, supports and expands on a traditional recording arts course of study. This helps advance women in the field by providing training and hands-on experience that is either hard to find or typically denied to women.
In an effort to support WAM in its mission, Neutrik provided 50 of its NC3FX, NC3MX and NP3C connectors, as well as 25 of its NP2C connectors, for the organization to use in its workshops, including “Make Your Own Cables” and “Basic Audio Electronics Testing & Wiring.”
Neutrik manufactures a wide array of XLR connectors and receptacles, jacks and plugs, speaker connectors and accessories for the professional audio industry.
