Accountability & Taking Action
Accountability: Commitment to taking action in an intentional way.
Greetings WPC Participants!
Consistent with WPC mission, vision and goals, we want each of you to think about how you do the work of understanding and dismantling privilege every day, all year long. We have heard about many exciting and challenging projects undertaken by many of you.
At WPC 2013, we launched the Accountability Planning Project.
As we move forward, look for enhanced accountability-focused workshops as we grow ourselves into a “community of action.” Our goal is that every participant will take conference learning beyond the walls and week of the conference and back into their own home environments by way of meaningful action year-round.
We recognize that each conference attendee has an individual level of comfort with and expertise in the area of translating concepts about privilege, inclusion and equity into specific action. Here, we offer a collection of ideas and examples from those who have taken their commitments beyond the conference. We pledge to support you in other ways, too, as we grow our community of action together.
