Some of these questions seem unusual for a membership demographic questionnaire. Yes, we agree.
NONE of these questions (except for your name and email) are required. Any insight you are willing to share will strengthen our understanding of the community we serve -- as people and professionals. We have left open fields for each question area that will allow you to share your comfort or discomfort with the question set. We are finding respondents that fit all across the spectrum! Answer what feels comfortable to you. Everything you say and don't say tells us more about you, our culture in STEM, and what work lies ahead. We will not share ANY of your personally identifying information in any way without your express permission. The information shared from this survey will only be anonymized, aggregated data patterns that tell a more robust story about our community.
Do you have a particular set of experiences stemming from your unique pathway that you would like to share in greater depth? We invite you to share your story.
