In Annual Competition, Students Question: If It’s Legal, It’s Ethical…Right?

Students from across campus participated in a competition on February 9, 2019, designed to simulate real-world ethical problems faced by a young technology company. The Interdisciplinary Ethics Tech Competition teams tackled the legal, ethical, technical, and business dimensions of a nuanced case problem concerning this startup’s leadership team and a decision on defining its ethical obligations related to a product. Silicon Flatirons hosted the competition with the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative at Colorado Law, which provides the scholarship and prize money.

Congratulations to the winning Interdisciplinary Ethics Tech Competition teams:
