Ethics and Technology Forum

The School of Information Ethics and Technology Forum was developed out of a growing concern among faculty that as New York evolves to become a major tech hub, and more students seek employment in technology companies, the school must not only teach the knowledge and skills students need, but also imbue students with an ability to be critical, reflective, and thoughtful about their role and their employers’ roles in the world. The annual School of Information Ethics and Technology Forum brings thought leaders to discuss the most pressing issues on this topic with the Pratt Institute community, and was made an annual initiative in the School of Information’s Strategic Plan 2019-2024.
