Ethical Technology is a new field of inquiry that seeks to develop an approach to technological innovation grounded in humanistic principles in values. It foregrounds tech ideation, practices, cultures, and products that are equitable in both process and outcome.

The Ethical Tech Initiative @ Cal Poly brings faculty together across areas of expertise to develop a framework for thinking about how we build technologies that make the world a better place—and what we envision as a better world. We create classes, we build partnerships, and we design programs that help train the next generation of the tech workforce to think ethically, equitably, and responsibly about what and how they will build a technological future. We work with scholars inside the academy, thought leaders, public interest technologists, and industry leaders to imagine technology in new ways, and we bring stakeholders together across divides to solve the major problems we face at the intersection of ethics, policy, and technological production.
