We are delighted to invite you to to a panel discussion to explore, debate and reflect on the Effective Altruism Movement. 

Effective Altruism is a philosophy and social movement that uses evidence and reasoning to determine the most effective ways to benefit others. Having gained wider traction in global philanthropy, donors are increasingly applying these principles to their giving. 

Prism wants to consider what this means for the philanthropy sector and Effective Altruism can, and if it should, be used as a guiding principle for philanthropy. 


Panel Chair: 
Charles Mesquita, Prism Trustee and Charities Director at Quilter Cheviot Investment Management
Panel Members: 
Natalie Cargill, Founder of Effective Giving UK
Wendy Harrison, Executive Director of the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative
Beth Breeze, Director of the Centre for Philanthropy at the University of Kent
Seán Ó hÉigeartaigh, Executive Director of The Centre for the Study of Existential Risk
