In conversation… creating accountable cultures

As part of the Humanitarian Accountability Report 2022: Accountability is Non-Negotiable, aid system experts held a series of a frank conversations on how to make aid more accountable to people affected by crisis.

In the chapter on organisational culture, Kelly Clement, Deputy United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and Anne Muraya, Director of Organizational Health of Thrive Worldwide discuss how to best cultivate accountable cultures within aid organisations and across the system as a whole.

Kelly believes that humanitarians need deeper examinations of how their values, beliefs, and behaviours are exhibited in their daily work. “I want us to bring the ‘human’ back into the ‘humanitarian’ sector.”

Anne highlights the importance of leadership self-awareness and modelling to build strong organisational cultures of accountability through collaboration, compassion, and integrity.
