Workshop: Ethics in Design: A Journey of Self-Reflection and Collaboration for Ethical Understanding
Do you have ethical guidelines as an individual designer? Does your organization have a code of ethics they uphold as they design products, services, and experiences? Ethics in Design: A Journey of Self-Reflection and Collaboration for Ethical Understanding is a hands-on workshop that will encompass me sharing my experiences working in the overlap between design and ethics, the role of designer as facilitator in ethical conversations, and tools and strategies for you to empower your teams to consider ethics in your design practice. Together, we will embark on a journey of self-reflection to uncover our personal ethical values and collaborate on finding common ethical ground as a design discipline working towards the goal of designing for good.
