The 2022 EA Community Survey

The EA Survey provides valuable information about the EA community and how it is changing over time. Every year, the survey is used to inform the decisions of a number of different EA organizations, including EA DC.

This is one of the best ways to have your voice heard and to help improve the EA community, both today and into the future.

Consider taking 10 minutes to complete it (regardless of your level of involvement with effective altruism).

A New Way to Connect with EA DC Members

EA DC now has an Intros.AI page where you can sign up to be connected to a new member over email each week, two weeks, or month for an introductory conversation. This is a great way to connect to other EAs in the area who share your interests. Sign up here!
