Safeguarding the sector: designing digital ethics for your charity

Jan 07, 07:00 AM
The Charity Digital Podcast returns for a series of three episodes focusing on the sometimes-neglected topic of digital ethics.

As an introduction to our discussion of digital ethics, this episode breaks down the broader subject into three areas: digital, data and technology.

Charities have adopted the principle of ‘do no harm’ into their field operations. How can this be applied to their digital output? And do charities have an ethical obligation to safeguard how any innovations stemming from their use of digital could be applied in the future?

Jonathan Chevallier welcomes Giselle Cory (Executive Director of DataKind UK), Chris Martin (CEO of The Mix) and James Mullarkey (Head of Digital at The British Veterinary Association) for the first installment of an informative and thought-provoking discussion.
