Discussion on: Have you ever fought back against a task on the basics of ethics?

Side question - those who have had formal training in CS/SE, did you ever have training in safety or ethics? I got my degree in a completely separate engineering discipline and we had dedicated courses for it. There are sometimes professional licensing boards and committees that handle ethics issues, depending on what you do. I don't think I've ever seen something like that for developers. I'd be curious to see if there is something out there and what it looks like.

Did not have any required course for it in my CSSE department. :( I decided on my own to take one in the Humanities and Social Sciences department, but it wasn't tech-focused. It was a general engineering ethics course. What I would personally love to see is an ethics class that has a whole section on designing/creating with accessibility in mind.
