EAecon is a new community-building project.
EAecon aims to reinforce the social cohesion of EA Economists across all EA-orgs, and to welcome new economists on board through four goals:
- learning GPREcon work
- networking and matching collaborators
- pitching academic, charity, and social entrepreneurship projects and getting noticed by grantmakers
- career development (discovering which academic and non-academic EA jobs are available for economists).
EAecon builds its community through two formats:
- An online community (in construction)
- organizing different types of physical events of different capacities throughout the year (EAecon Retreats and EAecon Meetings).
