CBB CREATE Series: Ethical By Design Workshop

Speaker: Dr. Jen Boger, Assistant Professor, SYDE, University of Waterloo.


There is an accelerating trend toward the necessity of ethical technology, system, and program development as well as  for the people who are making these products be responsible for what they create. How can developers/designers actively engage in responsible innovation, especially considering the diversity and complexity of related applications, contexts, and values? This workshop will first present the ‘Ethical by Design’ concept before exploring how the Ethical by Design principles could be used to foster multi-stakeholder involvement in more ethically responsible technology/system/program development.
