Effective Altruism Consulting Network

The Effective Altruism Consulting Network (EACN) is a professional network of current, former, and prospective business consultants who are interested in effective altruism.

The EACN seeks to facilitate its members' engagement with effective altruism ideas by providing the time and space for consultants to explore how to apply them to career and donation decisions, both during their time in consulting and afterwards. (Most consultants only work in consulting 2-5 years before exiting to work in industry, entrepreneurship, nonprofits, or the public sector). EACN programming includes: talent matching of members to high-impact organizations, 1-1 career conversations, weekend retreats, networking events, and the development of professional-targeted resources like the member network directory,  bi-weekly job blasts, the Career Check-In Template and Annual Giving Guide

The organization includes over 500 members and supports the leaders of EA workplace groups at each of the largest consulting firms, including Accenture, Bain, Boston Consulting Group, Deloitte, Kearney, McKinsey, and Oliver Wyman.


As of January 2023, the EACN has received over $300,000 in funding from Effective Altruism Infrastructure FundsOpen Philanthropy, and the Center for Effective Altruism.
