Who Are We?

Engineers for Social Responsibility Inc. is an independent group of engineers who consider that being knowledgeable in the field of technology means that they also have a special obligation to the public at large.

In these days of greater accountability, the professional can no longer hide behind a mask of “professionalism”.
