Ethics/Human Values

The ethical behavior of technologists, engineers, and technology industries is essential to the achievement of IEEE’s tagline Advancing Technology for Humanity.

Fundamental to this goal are ethical consideration of the implications of technological developments and innovation on all humans, regardless of race, religion, gender, disability, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.

This requires taking account of diverse socio-cultural and sectoral (public, private, education and research, societal, funding and international development) backgrounds and perspectives, especially from those whose voices are not represented during the development and innovation process.
