Demographic Data in Your Profile

Beginning in mid-2017 ASMS implemented a demographic data section within the user profile. This project was initiated by the Diversity Committee. Beginning November 2020 we have developed a more user friendly prompt inviting users to update their demographic data. This development coincides with a refresh selections available for questions relating to race/ethnicity, gender, and job sector.


What is the Face of ASMS-v2

  • LOOK for pop-up window after you sign-in to this website and click 'My Account'. This pop-up message will take you directly to edit your profile where you can make your selections in response to the updated demographic questions.
  • The Diversity Committee will prepare an annual infographic to explain the "Face of ASMS" so that we can easily share a snapshot of membership composition, conference presentations and registration. All data is anonymized for privacy before analysis. We anticipate publishing the first infographic in Spring 2021.
