Ep 33: Engineering Your Impact - an introduction to Effective Altruism

What is “impact”? How does it make us happy about what we do? Is there a way to ensure we are always making the difference we want to see? In this episode, several EWB UW chapter presidents join Simon in a (virtual) fireside chat to discuss the idea of Effective Altruism (EA) and their experiences with a Stanford University EA fellowship they recently completed.
