Privacy breaches and a drastic increase in the monetary value of our personal information require user experience (UX) designers and researchers to consider ethical choices more imperatively than ever before in their daily practice. The UX industry lacks ethical guidelines and standards or even a governing body that enforces any kind of universal framework of ethics. This workshop is designed to establish a foundation of understanding of ethical practice for designers, educators, developers, programmers, and individuals working in UX. Participants will collaborate and share knowledge between industries and practices, working together towards a framework that participants can take with them and implement them into their current UX workflow.
