About the Ethical IT Conference

Ethical IT: Who is responsible for what guides our decisions in how, why, and where we advance technology? While technology advances at an exponential rate, people are making decisions that stretch beyond what has been created in policy, regulation, and current best practices to protect and care for humanity. Participants in Amplify's Ethical IT event will come with questions and leave with questions - but will without a doubt, be aware of how to approach technology from an ethical and values mindset.
