    The OEC has officially launched Project Pages, a new feature on the OEC that highlights institutional or research projects facilitating the integration of ethics into teaching, training, or practice in engineering and science. Each page contains a summary of the project, leadership, project information, and links or supplemental documents. The first set of Project Pages is now live and can be viewed by following the link above or selecting the "Projects" icon under the Resources Tab.

    Think you've got a project that would make a good Project Page? Email Rebecca Monteleone (rgmontel@asu.edu) for more details.

    Algorithms are in use all around us, every day. Online shopping. Job applications. Real estate transactions. Search results. Public safety. Social media. Digital photo albums. You name it, there’s probably an algorithm involved with it somehow. But how do algorithms reinforce societal biases? And how can this be addressed? Join IEEE TechEthics on 30 May as Erin Ledell, Cathy O'Neil and Mathana Stender delve into this issue. Register for free at http://bit.ly/TechEthics-May2019
