My recent idea on the Future Funds’ Project Ideas post may be relevant? https://forum.effectivealtruism.org/posts/KigFfo4TN7jZTcqNH/the-future-fund-s-project-ideas-competition?commentId=qeeCrLXA5dJCAkjTQ
Basically, there should be some function in which to reward undervalued EA-related work. My idea focused on financial rewards, could extend it to include some prestige. Not exactly sure how to confer social rewards—how people gather and socialize doesn’t necessarily correlate with achievement (or maybe it does in the EA community… I wouldn’t really know).
