EACN Volunteers 

About the EACN

The Effective Altruism and Consulting Network (EACN) is a community of more than 300 consultants across the globe aiming to spread the idea of Effective Altruism within the consulting industry and beyond. We have key contacts at each of the biggest consultancies (McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Accenture, etc.) responsible for driving core EA ideas. 

The organization aims at maximizing the social impact of its members by fostering a community of like-minded professionals, investing time and resources strategically on and off the job, and donating effectively. It also serves as a link between consultants and the wider EA community. 

Past success included the creation and distribution of a giving guide leading to €150 000 in donations collected and the introduction of a bi-monthly coffee chats to connect with members or a panel discussion, which was joined by 400+ consultants.
