Details

Rationality is about the science of reasoning, and acting effectively to meet your goals.

This week, Elissa Fleming, Social Media Manager at Giving What We Can will discuss Effective Altruism. This is a movement that focuses on doing the most good. What charities are most effective in reducing suffering? How does your career choice effect your ability to do good?

Parental Warning: We are a very casual group. There is often swearing and discussion of mature issues.
