Admission Information

Join the Ethics, Society, and Technology Hub for our first Unconference

Register here to attend. Participants are welcome to come and go from the event as their schedule allows. 

An unconference means the conference is driven by the interests of participants and sessions are created by all of us. If we were in person, we would gather at the beginning of the event and collaboratively set the agenda for the day together. Instead we invite members of the Stanford community to help collectively set the agenda by posting sessions to a shared doc. Participants do not need to lead a session to attend.

The session possibilities are endless—share current research or projects, ideas you’re exploring, teaching tools, or anything else that makes you curious and excited at the intersections of ethics, society, and technology.

Some current sessions on Friday include:

  • Thinking about starting a tech company? Make it a worker-owned cooperative! (Ashlyn Jaeger & Katie Creel)
  • The tech kingmakers nobody talks about: the ethics of venture capital investors (Johannes Lenhard)
  • Principled Decision-Making (Jack Fuchs)
  • Productivity Culture, Lifehacking, and the Ethics of Attention (Alexa Hazel)
  • Who Gets To Write About Tech? Bringing student and worker voices into tech media (Jasmine Sun- Reboot)
