An ethical operating system for your organisation

Good intentions don't always lead to ethical actions. To close the intent to action gap, we need an approach to ethics that is embodied, contextual, and a living system within the organisation.

Explore our vision for how ETHOS might evolve to close the ethical to action gap in your organisation.

Plant values, grow responsible products, together

Don’t let deadlines, compromises, and tradeoffs get in the way of your team’s good intentions.

Whether you have waterfalls, sprints, scrums, huddles or cuddles, ETHOS will help you grow responsible products your way.

With the right nutrients, ETHOS will grow into a workflow-agnostic suite of practical ethics products that adapts to your needs.

Coming to life in the tools you already use

ETHOS is the Ethical Tension and Health Operating System for your organisation. It will integrate with your existing product stack:​

ETHOS for Jira

For every issue you create, ETHOS for Jira will connect your principles and pledges directly to the features you build.

ETHOS for Figma

Beyond pushing pixels, ETHOS for Figma will embed your ethical principles and pledges into the structure of your design system.

ETHOS for Slack

Amidst everyday discussions, ETHOS for Slack will capture the context of ideas, intentions and interactions, assessing your real-time ethical tension and health.

ETHOS for Zoom

In today's meeting space, ETHOS for Zoom will focus your efforts toward existing and emerging pledges. Helping your team keep aligned to what you care about.

ETHOS Garden: experience your team's health & tensions

Dashboards are boring and forgettable. With ETHOS, the values, principles, or pledges your team decides to plant together will turn into a living ETHOS Garden.

You will nurture your ETHOS Garden by practising Elemental Ethics skills within ETHOS-enabled apps. The Garden will be a place that grows with your team, dynamically reacts to emerging tensions, and is a mirror of how healthy your responsible practice is.

Connected together, ETHOS Gardens form a network that reflects the ethical health & tensions of the entire organisation.

ETHOS makes ethics

Interesting, fun, and accessible

Bye bye boring and burdensome. Hello ethics that makes you and your colleagues smile, learn and grow together.

Diverse and inclusive

Ethics is better when we do it together. ETHOS enhances the participatory nature of moral imagination today so that you can build better tech for tomorrow.


Integrate and embed ethics into your everyday tools, workflows and practices. By doing this you can nurture the values you’ve planted and benefit from the fruits of your labour.

Meaningful and memorable

ETHOS lives and breathes with you, enabling your team to do more of what you, together, believe to be ‘good’ and ‘right’.

Explore our ETHOS vision in detail

Clearly, ETHOS is an ambitious goal that we will not be able to reach alone – nor would we want to do this alone without engaging in codesign.

However, if the idea excites you, we invite you to explore how we currently see ETHOS growing from its seedling app form into a thriving ethics forest and an actual ethical operating system for your organisation.
