The ethics of design and technology have been discussed for years, yet digital products can still create harm and negatively impact marginalized and underinvested communities. With the increasing awareness of racism evoked by recent events, equitable product development has become the new trend. But how can we build equitable products while still questioning the ethics of products? Join Timothy Bardlavens, product design leader at Facebook, as he explores the intersection between behavioral public policy ethical frameworks and digital design and shows how designers can give delegated power to create products with more equitable outcomes.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- A new framework for design and tech ethics
- How power and delegation of power play a strong role in designers’ everyday decisions
- How building proactive, transformative equitable products means completely changing designers’ sensibilities
