We understand that real institutional accountability is more about long-term commitment and learning than a list of perfect policies and training.

Standards and tools may be broadly applicable across and within institutions, but real change is often sparked by dedicated, internal champions, and institutional follow through.

Accountable Now’s membership offers provide organisations and their committed internal champions with the tools, resources, accompaniment, and peer advice they need to ensure the organisation’s values are lived out in practice with staff, partners, funders, and other key stakeholders.

Continue reading to learn more about our different membership tiers and offers, and the wide range of flexible, actionable tools and tailored support we can provide to organisations on their journey towards becoming more dynamically accountable – no matter their starting point.

Guess what - many of our tools and support are also available to non-member organisations and institutions.

Does your organisation need ad hoc project support - for example to undertake a strategy review process or to establish a new partnership or governance structure?

What does support look like over the course of a year to members?

Joining Accountable Now means uniting with a community of like-minded practitioners who know that how we do our work is as important as what  we do. 

We offer exciting learning and peer exchange opportunities, designed by and for our members – such as our Dynamic Accountability Dialogues series, which bring together practitioners and other champions of accountability from around the world to share their insights and identify opportunities for collective action on topics such as decolonisation, gender, and climate.

“Reporting to Accountable Now yielded important insights into how we could enhance our accountability practices and continue to progress on our accountability journey. It helped facilitate institutional commitments for improvement and provided a framework for tracking and reporting on these commitments – in a way that mirrored the openness and transparency that we advocate for in the sector. As well, Accountable Now provided a safe space to unpack difficult accountability challenges with peers, which sounds small but was really powerful for us.”
