Workshop on Defining, Measuring, and Encouraging Impact

On Friday, March 22, 2019 a workshop co-sponsored by Effective Altruism at Michigan and Business+Impact gathered for the purpose of discussing social impact in terms of effective altruism, which is a philosophy that tries to discover how we can use our time and careers to do the most good possible.

This event was presented through the prism of business and effective altruism. Jerry Davis of Ross introduced B+I, and Prof. David Manley of U-M Philosophy talked about Effective Altruism, and lastly Trevor McCarty and Nicholas Hollman of EA @ Michigan discussed their club. Following these talks, there was an activities portion where workshop participants had input on how to accomplish the workshop’s goals.
