Geoffrey Canada, President and CEO of the Harlem Children’s Zone, discusses the concept of accountability and how systems outside of your individual organization have to establish a level of joint accountability in order to succeed. Canada presses that accountability is a necessary standard for achieving results. Without joint accountability programs internally, as well as externally in working with partners will not be able to guarantee success if the same standards of program implementation and data collection and analysis are not met by all organizations working together across the board.
