Abstract

We become just by performing just actions. —Aristotle, Nichomachean Ethics, 4th century, B.C. (Miner & Rawson, 2000) From the opening statement, it is evident that ethics has played a part in our everyday lives since the beginning of time, and still continues to do so. Another aspect of our lives that has become increasingly widespread is the use of information technology. In the Information Age, it is not often that we link ethics and information technology (IT). This article examines the link between ethics and IT, and the influence of gender on ethical considerations in the IT environment.
