Women in Audiology—Stories of Courage and Strength

Let’s face it. In many situations, women make the world go around, especially in the world of audiology, where women make up 82 percent of the workforce (American Academy of Audiology, 2019).

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused women to show their true strength. The pandemic forced audiologists to rethink and restructure their method of service delivery, as many of our patients are at the highest risk for morbidity. In addition, a record number of audiologists have been furloughed or forced to reduce their workload.
