Organizational Accountability Wheel Webinar

This session is designed to help participants think through how to build an organization that is accountable to its employees and the communities they serve, and establish a shared understanding of what accountability means.

Participants will have learn how their organizations can:

  • Translate their values into practice
  • Better support practice generative conflict, so that their staff can engage conflict in ways that generate more possibilities, greater connection, and fuller expression.
  • Increase equity across their teams, and understand what true diversity, inclusion and equity looks like.

Spring Up’s frameworks of accountability are informed by grassroots transformative justice and community accountability practice, and draw on the wisdom of the Indigenous Medicine Wheel, as expressed by the People of Standing Rock / Lakota.


rj is a black cisgendered father and educator. He has spent most of his life working in large-scale institutions and organizations, and is committed to reimagining organizational systems and large-scale capitalism. rj has a lot of interests (sports, music, puzzles [jigsaw, brain, logic, word, etc.], cooking and chilis, finding new interests, etc.) and loves to talk to them about anyone who shares a common bond. He is a Capricorn sun, Sagittarius moon and Taurus rising, so he clearly is a fan of long-term plans, which can be challenging at times as he and his family (partner, twin children and a dog) have adopted a nomadic lifestyle and have moved ten times over the past ten years.

Thanh is a community health worker and educator, focusing on mental, emotional, sexual, and reproductive health. They have spent the last 5 years working with mutual aid networks and public health centers to support refugees and migrants, Indigenous families, and LGBTQ+ youth. They hope to craft and collaborate on more community-centered health efforts that redirect funding to self-organized groups and neighborhoods. Thanh is the middle child of 7, based in Tongva land. They feel called back to home through language revitalization, and are working with their siblings and cousins to remember/speak Šmuwič and Viėt. They are a plant tender and herbalist, sharing native plants and tea blends through @MoonBabyMedicine on instagram.
