About Our SIG
SIG Information Ethics and Policy (IEP) helps ensure that ASIS&T members are aware of ethical issues, legislation, and regulation affecting the information field and members of the information professions. It provides venues that encourage research on and discussion of current and emergent information ethics and policy issues as they affect society. It promotes awareness of state/provincial, national and international policies of public and private entities.
Welcome our new SIG IEP Officers. Awa Zhu and Madelyn Sanfilippo are the new Chairs, Yousuf Ali has volunteered to be treasurer, Adaora Obuezie is the communication officer, and Aidah Larsen is the secretary. This year we will host webinars and co-host a workshop with SIG-SI at the 2021 ASIS&T Annual Meeting.
