Hi,
I'm quite interested in ethics in tech too !

I'm not sure this is what you asked for but I'll give you a sample of the resources I like best on ethics in design and programming. This is what I would give someone asking me for a first dive in the subject :)

I recommend one of Mike Monteiro's articles on ethic in designers' job, it's a good introduction for it, in my humble non-designer opinion : muledesign.com/2017/07/a-designers...

I also like this article from Matthias Wahl to introduce people to Ecological Design, Green Tech and relatives : blog.m7w3.de/responsibility-of-a-d...

About inclusion, here are some principles and a checklist I always try to keep in mind :
inclusivedesignprinciples.org
github.com/Heydon/inclusive-design...

This article from Adhithya also makes a good point for inclusion and a11y in the tech world and gives some web design insights I like : uxdesign.cc/designing-accessible-p...

I would highly recommend this newsletter for people wanting weekly accessibility tips and articles : a11yweekly.com/

I don't have anything in English in the case of "ethics by design" but I would encourage you to look it up.

Hope this helps !
