Speaker Events

OFTW Speaker Event Guide

A great way to rouse interest in the OFTW cause is to engage in learning and discussion about a related topic. On top of hearing you and your compatriates at the table, introducing your peers to the more academic or real-world aspects of what we do can engage people at a higher level.

Speakers could speak about global poverty, health crises in the developing world, experiences with ineffective philanthropy, data-driven philanthropy, effective altruism philosophy, etc. 

If you would like to host a speaker event this semester, reach out to Kennan (kennan@1fortheworld.org). Going through HQ (rather than cold emailing someone yourself) grants you access to our giant EA network, and could net you a speaker from GiveWell, The Life You Can Save, one of our charities, etc. Click here to see some speakers we've had in the past.
