The International Black Summit Network

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Accountability is a concept in ethics with several meanings. It is often used synonymously with such concepts as responsibility, answerability, enforcement, blameworthiness, liability, and other terms associated with the expectation of account-giving. As an aspect of governance, it has been central to discussions related to problems in both the public and private (corporation) worlds.

Accountability is defined as "A is accountable to B when A is obliged to inform B about A’s (past or future) actions and decisions, to justify them, and to suffer punishment in the case of eventual misconduct".[1]

In leadership roles, accountability is the acknowledgment and assumption of responsibility for actions, products, decisions, and policies including the administration, governance, and implementation within the scope of the role or employment position and encompassing the obligation to report, explain and be answerable for resulting consequences

Last night on the Facilitator Body call, these are the things I heard beginning to distinguish how Accountability lives in that Body as represented by various speakers:

1. Accountable as, for the WHOLE THING including when someone has said they would complete a task and don't do it - interacting with that person about that.

2. Accountable as, NOT for the WHOLE THING, yet accountable for tasks they agreed to complete, and

3. Accountable as, for the WHOLE THING by fulfilling upon what they said they would do, by when they said they would do it - representing the WHOLE THING - no separation between microcosm and macrocosm: as above so below and conversely, as below so above.
