Thursday, 17 August 2017 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM
Paper Giant – Suite 10/Level 3, The Nicholas Building, 37 Swanston St, Melbourne VIC 3000
For this month’s Third Thursday service design event, we invite you to visit PaperGiant, where we’ll be discussing topics close to the heart of many designers – how can we be good design citizens? And how do we know we’re making a difference?
The Ethics of Design
Many designers enter the industry for altruistic reasons – they want to do good work, and make a difference. Beyond choosing an industry or organisation that aligns with our personal values, what does it mean to be an ethical designer?
Our panel will discuss the following questions:
What does it mean to do ethical work?
What do we need to be aware of so that we can better talk on behalf of others?
What compromises are we willing to make, and why?
Associate Professor Yoko Akama, RMIT University.
