Staff count by year

Hover over a name to see the position and date range. This table only includes positions where at least the start date is known. The positions count can count the same person multiple times if they held different positions. For each year, a person is included if they were at the organization for any part of the year; this means the actual staff count at any point during the year can be lower.

Summary of Core Feedback Collected by CEA in Spring/Summer 2019 2019-11-07 Ben West Effective Altruism Forum Centre for Effective Altruism Third-party commentary on organization Movement building The document summarizes findings from feedback collected by CEA in the Spring and Summer of 2019 from "about a dozen people who work in senior positions in EA-aligned organizations" about CEA and the effective altruism community. The post also says "The feedback is presented “as is,” without any endorsement by CEA." Things listed as going well include (1) comnunity health and events projects, (2) smart, talented, and thoughtful members, (3) kind members. Things which could be improved: (1) execution issues with EA Grants, EA Funds, and other projects, (2) communication and branding issues with EA Global and the EA Forum, (3) perception of low welcomingness, (4) demographic homogeneity.
Roundtable: how can remote employees maintain a healthy work-life balance? 2019-10-26 Cash Callaghan Animal Charity Evaluators The Humane League, Centre for Effective Altruism, Animal Equality, Rethink Charity, Animal Charity Evaluators, ProVeg International Stephanie Frankle, Julia Wise, Antonia Vitale, Baxter Bullock, Leah Edgerton General discussion of organizational practices AI safety|Animal welfare The blog post is a roundtable between people working in executive, operational, and community health roles at organizations in the animal welfare and effective altruism spaces. It is mainly focused on how organizations with remote employees can maintain a healthy work-life balance. Some of the organizations are completely remote (they have no central office) whereas others have both on-site and remote employees. Common themes emphasized by multiple participants include: work-life separation through time (keeping clear working hours boundaries) and space (e.g., having a designated space for working in one's home), open and proactive communication, encouraging time off with leadership setting an example, and keeping a healthy level of social interaction through tools such as Slack.
