This Week's ACE Highlight: Conversations & Interviews

This blog post is a part of our ACE Highlight series. Every other Thursday we feature current, relevant, and engaging topics from the ACE website.
ACE offers a wealth of content, including charity reviews, intervention research, and resources for charities, donors, and volunteers alike. Yet in order to learn as an organization and improve the advice we give, it’s important to sometimes get an outside view to supplement our data.

That’s why we debuted our Conversations & Interviews page last March. Periodically, we conduct interviews and hold conversations with advocacy organization leaders, charity representatives, influential funders, academic researchers, and other experts. These interviews offer unique outside perspectives on our mission.

Our first interview was with Matt Ball, who co-founded and served as executive director of Vegan Outreach for over twenty years. His critique of research in animal advocacy and the motivations of animal activists generated discussion on our blog.

Our first conversation was with Elie Hassenfeld, co-founder and co-executive director of GiveWell. Elie spoke with ACE Board Chair Simon Knutsson on ACE’s vision, and helped us to better understand how we can accomplish our mission.

In addition, our Conversations & Interviews page links to fascinating discussions outside of ACE, such as GiveWell’s informal conversation on industrial agriculture with ACE Executive Director Jon Bockman, as well as ARZone’s podcast interview with Jon last month.

What kind of content would you like to see added to the Conversations & Interviews page? Do you have a potential interviewee in mind? You can be part of the discussion as well! Comment on our blog and visit our Facebook page.
