About the Event
In this talk, Ruth will discuss the ways that the aims of Effective Altruists who are focused on near-term social impact can be met only with a diverse set of actions beyond the implementation of specific interventions. She will also share how IDinsight, as a research and evaluation organization, systematically measures its own contributions to social impact.
