Staff count by year

Hover over a name to see the position and date range. This table only includes positions where at least the start date is known. The positions count can count the same person multiple times if they held different positions. For each year, a person is included if they were at the organization for any part of the year; this means the actual staff count at any point during the year can be lower.

Year Positions count Researchers General staff Associates Board members Advisors

2019 5 Asya Bergal, Daniel Kokotajlo, Rick Korzekwa, Ronja Lutz, Tegan McCaslin

Additionally there are faded variants of each color for visited links.
