Notes on "Managing to Change the World"

Congratulations on the launch, Jan-Willem!

Good luck in the final months of 2021 and the new year - and if/when you expand to the Americas, feel free to drop me a line. Would be happy to chat and share any resources that may be helpful.

Notes on "Managing to Change the World"

Thank you for sharing this, Peter. My old organization brought Hauser’s and Green's group — The Management Center — in for a training session in 2019. It was excellent. TMC also has plenty of free resources on its website, for those who are interested. I'll check out the book this winter.

Will be interested to see if Training for Good (which sounds very promising) also adopts any of TMC’s free resources. TFG looks like it’s mainly focused on EMEA audiences and time zones, while I’m not sure if TMC is well-known outside North America. There may be potential for valuable cross-pollination of best practices, etc. 

Three podcast episodes on energy and climate change

Agreed: I also started with the CATF episode today, and look forward to moving on to the 80K, GWWC, and Singer episodes in the weeks to come!

Resources for EA-Adjacent, not "EA-Affiliated" Organizations?

Thank you for sharing this question, more better!

As someone whose day job involves some work at the intersection of climate change and public health, I’m curious to learn more about your work. Would you feel comfortable sharing a bit more about your / your group’s work and goals for the coming months and years?

Thanks again for kicking off a great question and discussion.

Open Thread: September 2021

On another global health note, eligible U.S. residents may be interested in these 10+ newly posted roles on USAID's COVID-19 Task Force. The Task Force has some fantastic people on it — and a friend at USAID has enjoyed the pace at the agency under Samantha Power.

Guarding Against Pandemics

Thanks for sharing this write-up, and I look forward to learning more at the 10/12 call.

I also chipped in via the ActBlue link —  and would encourage other U.S. citizens thinking about their 2021 and 2022 effective giving to do the same. Contributions also have a greater impact earlier in the election cycle (e.g., in fall 2021 versus fall 2022) so there's no time like the present.

Open Thread: September 2021

Our Mayo Clinic team featured Charity Entrepreneurship alumna and Giving What We Can member Dr. Lucia Coulter and the Lead Exposure Elimination Project on our blog several weeks ago.

Crazy ideas sometimes do work

Congratulations, Aryeh! 

Look forward to following your work.

Exit opportunities after management consulting

Thank you for this post!

Would add this plug for ex-consultants interested in GCBRs and global health interventions: consider opportunities at well-resourced academic health systems. Examples in North America  include Cleveland Clinic, Mass General Brigham (the umbrella for many of Harvard Medical School's teaching hospitals),  Mayo Clinic, UCSF, and UHN in Ontario.

To pick one institution: if you go to this Jobs page and enter "strategy" in the keyword search, a number of roles oriented toward ex-consultants and/or those with MBAs and other business experience will pop up.

This list may give an idea of other opportunities in your region: https://www.newsweek.com/best-hospitals-2021
