1What Are “Ethics in Design”?2018Victoria SgarroUSASlate
https://slate.com/technology/2018/08/ethics-in-design-what-exactly-does-that-mean.html
-52ce-4025-b208-0ad65e353b43
Examples of product design that fail on the ethics front are all too easy to find—like news feeds promoting fake news, ride-hailing companies psychologically exploiting workers, and virtual home assistants perpetuating negative gender stereotypes.
It’s not that product designers don’t care about the ethical ramifications
of their work—far from it. It’s that, too often, they assume that such considerations fall outside of their job description.

7Who Do Designers Really Work For?2018Mike MonteiroUSAAdobe Blog
https://theblog.adobe.com/design-ethics-who-designers-really-work-for/
“You may be hiring us, and that may be your name on the check, but we do not work for you. We’re coming in to solve a problem, because we believe it needs to be solved, and it’s worth solving. But we work for the people being affected by that problem.
Our job is to look out for them because they’re not in the room.
And we will under no circumstances design anything that puts those people at risk.”

9A Designer’s Code of Ethics2017Mike MonteiroUSAMule Design
https://muledesign.com/2017/07/a-designers-code-of-ethics
Before you are a designer, you are a human being. Like every other human being on the planet, you are part of the social contract. We share a planet. By choosing to be a designer you are choosing to impact the people who come in contact with your work,
you can either help or hurt them with your actions. The effect of what you put into the fabric of society should always be a key consideration in your work. Every human being on this planet is obligated to do our best to leave this planet in better shape than we found it.
Designers don’t get to opt out.
