Thanks for doing this analysis! My project plans for 2020 (at CEA) include more efforts to analyze and address the impacts of diversity efforts in EA.
I’d be interested in being in touch with the author if they’re open to it, and with others who have ideas, questions, relevant analysis, plans, concerns, etc.
I’m hopeful that EAs, like the author and commenters here, can thoughtfully identify or develop effective diversity efforts. I think we can take wise actions that avoid common pitfalls, so that EA is strong and flexible enough as a field to be a good “home base” for highly altruistic, highly analytical people from many backgrounds. I’m looking forward to continued collaboration with y’all, if you’d like to be in touch: email@example.com.
Thanks Sky! I’ll be in touch over email.
