A TIME magazine investigation alleges a “toxic culture of sexual harassment and abuse” within effective altruism. I look at the original article and the community’s subsequent reaction. Content warning: sexual harassment and abuse; racism; sexism.
Nick Bostrom’s email and subsequent apology have sparked fresh discussions about inclusion and belonging in effective altruism. Who is or can be an effective altruist? Whose voices will be heard? I discuss recent calls for reform and suggest tangible avenues for evidentially-supported improvement.
