Description

What is the workshop about?

A thought-provoking two-hour workshop aimed at those working in product, design, management and engineering.

When you design or engineer a product, you believe that it will have a positive impact on your target market. But do you have the resources to think about how your technologies might affect society as a whole? This evening workshop will introduce you to the basics of ethical thinking and will help you implement ethics in your working day.

  • Introduction to ethics and morality
  • Introduction to meta-ethics and constructing ethical frameworks
  • Focus on human rights
  • Discussion of governance and implementation through your working day
  • An understanding of the language and process of ethics-by-design
