How to organize a graduate conference | Jonathan Courtney
Jul 09, 2021

Jonathan explores his experience organizing the graduate conference for his department (Ethics and Public Affairs, Carleton University). He outlines how he attempted to set a theme that would allow for effective altruism research topics, and what he would plan to do differently next time.

 Jon formerly served as the Director of Community, Director of Outreach, and Assistant Executive Director for Giving What We Can. In the past, he volunteered for a number of other poverty oriented non-profits, including a university chapter for the World Food Program he founded at his previous university. He holds a Master's degree in Philosophy from Oxford.
