When you sign the Pledge, you show intent to adopt the Global Data Ethics framework and principles into your data work. Your signature shows an intent to commit to the FORTS framework, which stands for Fairness, Openness, Reliability, Trust, and Social Behavior, along with the principles (described below) in your data work. Signing the Pledge acts as a “show of hands” for this community-driven, industry-agnostic Hippocratic Oath for data work.
Now, show your intent by signing the Pledge.
Next, help us build the tools to apply the framework and principles into our collective data lifecycle.
