I believe the TIME article has been updated since its original publication to reflect your response. If you have the chance, would you be able to comment on the updated version?

Excerpt taken as of 18:30 PST 3 Feb 2023:

"In an email following the publication of this article, Wise elaborated. “We’re horrified by the allegations made in this article. A core part of our work is addressing harmful behavior, because we think it’s essential that this community has a good culture where people can do their best work without harassment or other mistreatment,” Wise wrote to TIME. “The incidents described in this article include cases where we already took action, like banning the accused from our spaces. For cases we were not aware of, we will investigate and take appropriate action to address the problem.”"

Thank you for the very in depth post! I've had a lot of conversations about the subject myself over the past several months and considered writing a similarly themed post, but it's always nice to find that some very talented people have already done a fantastic job carefully considering the topic and organizing the ideas into a coherent piece :) 

On that note, I'm currently conducting a thesis on effective hiring / selection methods in social-mission startups with the hopes of creating a free toolkit to help facilitate recruitment in EA (and other impact-driven) orgs. If you have any bandwidth I'd love to learn more about your experience regarding the talent ecosystem in EA and see if I could better tailor my project to help address some of the gaps/opportunities you've identified

The tent and campground analogy and vocabulary is very helpful, thank you! I wish I'd had it in my toolkit a few weeks ago when trying to discuss the nuances of community building at an EA retreat - probably would've saved a lot of time and made for better mutual understanding. Glad to have it going forward though!

There is a HUGE value add to having this easily accessible - wish I could upvote more. Would be nice for @CEA and/or @80k to promote/integrate this as well, or help make the project more robust with their relevant internal resources

Thank you for posting and putting this (and the other resources you've linked) together!

I'm very interested in developing the talent supply chain in the EA community and see a lot of value in these kinds of databases. However, the added value of a database can be much greater the more comprehensive it is, tempered by appropriate tagging for filterability -> it would be a nice goal to work towards integrating this database with the 80k Job Board database, as well as connecting more directly with EA Orgs to bridge the gap between supply and demand for talent and opportunities.

I cannot speak for the newly launched EA Hiring Network, but I hope to do some direct work building out the talent infrastructure of the EA ecosystem and believe there would be a long term strategic value to integrating all opportunities (full time, volunteer, training, internship - no need to limit by category so long as the tags allow for filtering) into a cohesive database in tandem with a talent database which would allow for much more efficient talent matching and allocation across EA orgs. 

While any progress in that direction would be at the soonest many months in the future, is collaborating on this kind of initiative something that you would be interested in? If so, I'd love to connect and discuss potential synergies :)

Thank you for posting! 

I am about to enter the last semester of a Master's in Business where I should have the opportunity to focus a thesis and potentially pursue an entrepreneurial startup as part of my program. My goal is to leverage that time and those resources to work on something that could potentially be useful to the EA (and wider impact oriented) community and would love to hear more about specific needs/gaps you'd like to see addressed so that I could steer my projects accordingly.

I have a background in Industrial/Organizational Psychology, HR, Non-for-Profit Leadership and even (accidentally) had a business strategy role that involved lots of research on bridging skills gaps and developing talent pipelines. 

Currently I'm drafting several proposals for projects/ventures that are relevant to the careers/talent space and hope to have a small portfolio of actionable plans by the end of August. 

I know that Lee McC  is also working on a project in this space with Nonlinear. I'd love to get in touch with anyone else working on the subject to get an overview of the state of affairs, goals and strategy for talent management in EA

Interested and posting so I'll receive notifications if there's any change here - not available for work until January though, so I'll be reaching out later :)
