ASM Member Demographics

ASM is working to better understand and meet the needs of our members and stakeholders by collecting and tracking demographic information related to gender, race and ethnicity. We will utilize these data to not only better understand our members, but to also track our progress in diversifying the ASM community. We invite you to update your profile demographics below.

Chart shows results of survey on member race and gender from March 2022. For gender: 16% women, 28% women, 55% no response.  Race: White, 20.6%; Asian, 3.4%; Black or African American, 1.2%; Hispanic.

ASM uses U.S. Census data values when collecting demographic information. We understand that these values are not fully inclusive or holistic, and we are actively working to enhance our data collection so that we can address these gaps.
Note: The higher total for race/ethnicity is due to acceptance of multiple designations per member
Data updated 5/19/2022.
