Who We Are

Advancing practice-oriented ethics in the digital age!

In September 2019, the first Swiss Global Digital Summit took place in Geneva, Switzerland, to provide a platform to promote in-depth discussions on “Ethics and Fairness in the Age of Digital Transformation”. The Summit represented the starting point of the “Swiss Digital Initiative” (SDI). During WEF 2020 in Davos, the Swiss Digital Initiative celebrated its official launch and the creation of the foundation.
