Subject: Effective Altruism Club Info Session Thursday!

Description:
The world faces so many problems that it can be difficult to know where to
start. Effective altruism (EA) offers a framework for comparing different
ways to do good and then acting on the most promising of them. Effective
altruism is both a research field and a community of people, dedicated to
using evidence and reasoning to work out how to help others the most.

In a world increasingly rich with high-quality data and growing technological
risks, computer science majors have enormous potential to leverage their
skills for good, so we are excited to invite you to Effective Altruism @
UMD's upcoming information session on Thursday, September 15th, from
7:30-8:30 PM in the Carver Room 3403 G (3rd floor of STEM Library). We'll
talk about the frameworks we use to evaluate effective opportunities, as well
as introduce our upcoming weekly discussion group. Pizza (vegan & non vegan
options) will be served.

If you are interested in learning more about effective altruism, this 30
minute read is a good introduction to the big ideas as well as the causes
many in the community believe are the most important at the moment.
