The Ethical Stack

The fundamental premise of our work is that working for justice and equity in tech starts "at home," within creator communities, and radiates outward from there: to collaborators, adopters, users, all the way down to the people who are most affected by these technologies.

This is the philosophy behind the Ethical Stack, a comprehensive, layered approach to centering ethics in open technologies. By adopting and adapting layers, such as codes of conduct, transparent governance, social contracts, and ethical licenses, open source communities can center and support their shared values in all the work they do.

How We Work

We are proud of our innovative way of working:

We strive to center the Ethical Source Principles in all of the work we do.
