Women in Acoustics Committee

The Women in Acoustics (WIA) Committee is a subgroup of the Acoustical Society of America created in 1995. The committee fosters a supportive atmosphere within the Society and within the scientific community at large, ultimately encouraging women to pursue rewarding and satisfying careers in acoustics.
