Interested in Leading a Learning or Working Group?

We want to support more EA DC members who are interested in organizing groups of people to learn about or work on EA-related topics.

So far, we have had much success with reading groups focused on emerging tech, EA and religion, and infosecurity.

If you have a topic that you would like to organize a learning, reading, or working group around please fill out 
this form and we will get back to you quickly!

A Note About Our December Events…

Many our members travel in December, so we opted to have a single large event instead of our normal series of events.

If you would like to connect with the EA DC community more in December please feel free to reach out to any members on 
our community directory, sign up for a 1-on-1 call with an organizer, or reach out to people on our Slack!
