- To work towards a membership of the AES that will best reflect the demographics of working audio professionals.
- To increase AES membership and broader participation in the audio industry by helping the Society become more diverse and inclusive.
These efforts will include women and other underrepresented groups, as well as students and young audio professionals working in newer music genres and audio fields.
