Ethics in Design: What 2020 Taught Us | Houston

About this event

2020 has only served to shine a light on the many ways ethical gaps and dark patterns have crept into our systems. From uncontrollable propaganda on Facebook to unwanted surveillance and data collection, the systems we’ve created are failing in real time, and affecting our society in vast and devastating ways.

As designers, we have a moral obligation to create something that has a positive impact on the world. What designers decide to design (or not design), who they choose to include or ignore, and what segments of society are deemed an “edge case”.

During this discussion, we’ll feature a set of designers who will discuss some of today’s most concerning ethical design problems, and what we as a society can do to ensure positive change going forward.
