Decide Who You Help and Why (or, Distribution Ethics)Taught By
Why defining your ethical stance is one of the most important decisions you’ll make.
As a tech nonprofit, impact is your north star. But how do you define this impact? How do you decide who to serve? To help you answer these big – and critical – questions, Medic Mobile Co-Founder Josh Nesbit will guide you through a framework called Distribution Ethics. A set of thought experiments, Distribution Ethics helps you decide what to build, and for whom – AKA your ethical stance. Put simply: this class will help you make sure your work is actually driving the value you want to make in the world. You’ll learn:
- Ethical frameworks for thinking through who gets your helpful solution
- How to decide who you’ll help based on your ethical framework
- How to define your chain of causality, or the connection between inputs, outputs, & impact
