The EA Gather is an always-on virtual meeting place for coworking, socialising, and events. Join and help us maintain a community of effective altruists online! Feel free to read the norms below if you're uncertain what it's about, or just explore on your own.
If you want to host events here or find a place for your group to meet or host coworking sessions, get in touch! We have an event guide and we'd be happy to help.
Desks placed in an array are for coworking. Feel free to join any coworking pod, but join with your mic turned off and press 'X' near the monitor to check the pod’s shared timer so you don’t interrupt their focus.
Standing in an area with a white vase signals that you're open for people to come and start a conversation, and that you should feel free to start or join a conversation with anyone there.
Rooms with open doors are available meeting rooms anyone can use. Don’t enter a meeting that has a closed door.
Spaces for people who wish not to be disturbed but still want to support the space by being around!
Spending time online even while not coworking is also encouraged to give the space a livelier feel.
We have tailored rooms for specific groups or organisations. Feel free to explore, but respect their Norms if they have any.
All the rooms in the Main Area (the first map you see), are free to use even if they have a logo.
