Intro to Effective Altruism Talk + Fellowship Info Session

First meeting of the semester for Effective Altruism at Georgia Tech! We'll have a presentation providing an overview of effective altruism and our upcoming Effective Altruism Fellowship! Free food will be provided afterwards for us to eat together outdoors.

Effective altruism is an ongoing research field that aims to find the best ways to improve the world, through the use of evidence and careful reasoning. It’s also a community of people who strive to take action on that basis, and to do the most good we can. Here’s an article explaining this in much more detail: Introduction to Effective Altruism

At Effective Altruism at Georgia Tech, we try to apply the principles of effective altruism to help interested students have as big of a social impact as they can with their lives; whether that’s pursuing a social impact career that tackles a key pressing global problem, or through donating to highly effective charities.

If attending in-person, we expect each attendee to wear a face mask covering their nose and mouth while indoors. A face mask will be provided if you do not have one. Please attend virtually if you have symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever or cough.
