Exploring Ethical Tech | Data Discovery Workshop

Join us in Exploring Ethical Tech with a focus on design and development on the fourth day of our Digital City Fringe Festival.

As a rapidly growing tech hub and socially progressive region, Greater Manchester has the potential to establish itself on a global stage as an examplar for tech ethics. The region has thriving tech for good scene embodied through pro-active community at Tech for Good Live, as well as establishing itself as a progressive centre for civic tech, with Salford planning to establish itself as a world-leading SmartCity, and two security hubs being established at the University of Manchester and Manchester Digital.

Collaboration, innovation and an inclusive economy are central to the region’s ambitions, and so designing, developing and deploying tech that goes beyond industry to consider people, communities, society and the environment is essential to the region’s future. Sponsored by the Co-op Foundation and Luminate, and building on The Federation’s work to educate and upskill organisations in responsible tech practice, the Exploring Ethical Tech fringe festival aims to bring ethical tech to the heart of the city’s Digital City programme, and engage Greater Manchester’s tech ecosystem in our work to bring the humanity back to tech.
