You can have a look into the Shrimp Welfare Project (SWP), a new EA organization created through the Charity Entrepreneurship Incubation Program 2021.
Andrés Jimenez Zorilla was also on the how I learned to love shrimp podcast.
Hi Claudia,welcome to the EA Forum. :)There are EA ops groups:EA Operations Slack for those who are currently working at EA orgs already, or their Facebook group Effective Altruism Operations.At the EAGx Berlin 2023 we had an operations meetup, I can ask if you want to connect with some of the organizer.Here is also the Effective Altruism Singapore local chapter.Good luck with your career path.
Hi Jordan,welcome to the EA Forum. :)@Ekaterina_Ilin studies stars and exoplanets at the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam. Maybe this connection can help you with your research.
This topic was discussed yesterday in the EA Germany Slack, starting with this article and asking if there is a website which lists all companies in Germany who match donations:Why Workplace Giving Matters for Nonprofits + CompaniesSome companies use external service providers for their matching. We can look at their clients to gain more information who matches donations.Matching Gift Software Vendors: The Comprehensive ListWith some examples:https://benevity.com/client-storieshttps://www.joindeed.com/ https://360matchpro.com/partners/ Could be a first step.
Hi Alyssa,welcome to the EA Forum. :) This post could also have been a Quick Take or a post in this open thread as a starting point.This serves well as your introduction, and I am glad you wrote it. Your post could already make someone curious if their company maybe too participates in matching donations and gives an incentive to search for opportunities on a small scale level.
To get the proposed public list going, it could help to make a separate post going more into detail on which actions to take and a more detailed sketch of the first plan (does not need to be perfect!).
Perhaps someone else has thought about this idea too, and we can brainstorm here a bit.

"The general adult population read 150 – 250 words per minute, while adults with college education read 200 – 300 words per minute. However, on average, adults read around 250 words per minute."https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-fast-considered-speed-reading-quick-facts-paul-nowakThis text has 3037 words. 3037 / 250 = 12,15 min."In the English language, people speak about 140 words per minute. A fast speaker will get to 170 words per minute, a slow speaker will use around 110 words."https://debatrix.com/en/speech-calculator/ 3037 / 140 = 21,70 minThe AI finished reading this post at 18:50 with the outro left. So we have 18,83 min.3037 / 18,83 = 161,29 words per minuteThe AI voice speaks slightly faster than the average human.Does this answer your question?
Thank you for your dedication to the community. I think this post is really important, shows respect to the candidates and what you do has an overall positive impact on the community. I understand that this level of interaction is not possible for every application (e.g. 80k advice), but I am all the more happy to see it in other areas of EA.
Edited:Speaking in my own opinion, I think this comment breaks Forum norms by being unnecessarily rude. I'll raise it to the moderator team and discuss it.
Sorry, I wanted to write "This post [...]." Edited the comment.
