• Designing the right future: A conversation about ethics - with R. Hodé

    Whether you’re a designer, a developer or an entrepreneur, you are in the business of putting new things into the world. It’s an exciting line of work, but one that also comes with its fair amount of responsibilities.

    The products that we push to the market are not neutral, they influence how people behave and live their life, and every single decision we make when designing them shapes the future world we’ll all live in.

    When you're already battling with budgets, deadlines, technologic feasibility, business viability, intense competition, investors priorities and more, incorporating ethics into your work is easier said than done.

    In this talk, Raphael will lay the foundations of what ethics mean in the context of design and tech, why it matters today more than ever, and share tips on how to be a 5% more ethical innovator.

    ApéroTalk is our event series based on a very simple (and very French) concept: Apéro and Talk.
