Membership Demographic Questions on Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation and Race and Ethnicity:

In 2019, the Membership Committee, chaired by Lin Fang, employed a systematic process to modify the sexual orientation/sexual identity and gender identity questions on the membership form. The goal of these modifications is to ensure that the membership form captures the most accurate and inclusive information about our SSWR constituents. This information will be used to tailor programs and practices that more effectively address diversity and inclusion within our organization. Currently, the main charge for the 2020 Membership Committee is to undergo a similar process to modify and update the current questions about race, ethnicity and disability on the membership form. In sum, we aim to complete this process and have the membership and registration forms updated in Fall 2021; in time for the 2022 SSWR annual meeting. The membership committee will continue to utilize a transparent process that is responsive to the membership. We appreciate your support as we embark on this journey and welcome the involvement and feedback of membership.
