Beginning in mid-2017 ASMS implemented a demographic data section within the ASMS.org 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.

Statement on Usage of Your Demographic Data
As a society we hope to serve a diverse group of researchers and scholars from different backgrounds. Collection of demographic information will help us better understand how well we reflect the general population and how we compare to other scientific and academic societies and organizations. This information will remain confidential, it will not be shared with other institutions or agencies, and will not be used for individual identification.
