Join us for the 6th event of "Computer Science and Friends” virtual public lecture series!
Since Donna Lindskog (BSc Hons '79, MSc'92) retired from SaskTel 12 years ago, she has written a book called “The More Things Change: A Case Study to Introduce Information Technology Ethics” and has been awarded the status of CIPS fellow IT Ethics are an important part of being an IT Professional and it is where Donna continues to encourage industry discussions. From the privacy issues with Facebook to the recent explosion of AI concerns, IT Ethics are now political issues that we must all work to clarify. IT Professionals are needed to describe the facts and issue the warnings. As past Chair of the Saskatchewan Information Technology Sector Partnership with government and educators, Donna led discussions about recruitment into the IT sector and how to support career paths in Saskatchewan and Canada. Donna will describe some lessons learned and some challenges for growth of Ethical IT Talent in Canada.
