Holding Ourselves Accountable
PARC's definition of accountability:
“Accountability means making the choice to be vulnerable and challenge your pride, accepting responsibility for your actions and acknowledging your place in the cycle of privilege and oppression (institutional, ideological, interpersonal, and internal). Accountability is about continually setting and holding both yourself and others to a common expectation by clearly defining the team’s values and goals.”
At PARC, we acknowledge that we always have room to learn, grow, and do better. We are grateful for our community's support, feedback, and collaboration in this ongoing process. If you'd like to learn more and/or contribute to our process, please explore these links:
