Ethical concerns have had a place in the engineering profession for over 100 years. Our profession’s approaches to ethics, however, have not prevented us from contributing to the unequal social and environmental outcomes that we see in the world today. In fact, engineers have had a key role in creating the physical and regulatory structures that lead to discriminatory…
