Ethical Considerations

As discussed throughout each module, working in a community is far from simple. Responsible community engagement begins with a consideration of ethics. Entering your project with a conscious focus on ethical considerations related to your work will help you minimize unintended negative consequences of your work. We will be discussing three considerations:

  • Social identities and intersectionality
  • Power and privilege
  • Representation
