Rowing and Steering the Effective Altruism Movement | Joshua Monrad | EAGxOxford 22
Show Notes

How much should the effective altruism community focus on becoming more influential, and how much should it focus on how to use its influence? In this talk, Joshua Monrad (Future of Humanity Institute) will discuss this question. Borrowing Holden Karnofsky’s analogy of “rowing and steering,” the talk will present arguments in favour of ‘steering’ more than we currently are. Finally, Joshua will discuss red-teaming and critical analyses as an example of something that could improve the direction of the EA movement.

Effective Altruism is a social movement dedicated to finding ways to do the most good possible, whether through charitable donations, career choices, or volunteer projects. EA Global conferences are gatherings for EAs to meet.
