How do I edit my profile?

It’s important for you to keep an updated profile on ALLY so that other allies can find you and that you can create a more customized experience for yourself. To update your profile, go to the top menu bar and next to your name click on the down arrow, select MY PROFILE. You can then update your profile photo and your cover photo.

Creating your profile ALLY™ is central to the way you experience ALLY™. The more fields you fill in, the more the ALLY™ content will prioritize your interests and goals reflected in your profile description. This also allows others in your industry network identify you more easily .

The below video instructions will guide you on updating and maintaining your profile.

Edit your profile: Under your profile icon, move your mouse over Profile to click Edit
