Ethics in Design

March 24, 2021
6:30pm (MDT)

While digital designers don’t have a professional association to keep them on the straight and narrow, they still bear responsibility for the products they create and the effects those products have. Ethics in design is a fraught topic because it forces us to confront the ramifications of our work. A panel of seasoned designers discuss what we’re responsible for, how to advocate for users, how to effect change within an organization, how to ask “why” and say “no” in ways that get results.
