  1. accountability

    Etymologically, duty is that which is owed or due; obligation, that to or by which one is bound; right, that which is correct, straight, or in the direct line of truth and goodness; responsibility, that for which one must answer. Duty and responsibility are thought of as to some person or persons; right is impersonal. One's duty may be to others or to himself; his obligations and responsibilities are to others. Duty arises from the nature of things; obligation and responsibility may be created by circumstances, as by one's own promise, or by the acceptance of a trust, etc. We speak of a parent's duty, a debtor's obligation; or of a child's duty of obedience, and a parent's responsibility for the child's welfare. Right is that which accords with the moral system of the universe. Righteousness is right incarnated in action. In a more limited sense, right may be used of what one may rightly claim, and so be the converse of duty. It is the creditor's right to demand payment, and the debtor's duty to pay. Compare BUSINESS.

    Synonyms:
    business, duty, function, obligation, office, responsibility, right, righteousness

How to use accountability in a sentence?

  1. Craig Minassian:

    While it's common for global charities to receive international support, it's rare to find an organization as transparent as the Clinton Foundation, by implementing this new, even stronger and more transparent policy, the Clinton Foundation is reinforcing its commitment to accountability while protecting programs that are improving the lives of millions of people around the world.

  2. Jason Young:

    As the cycle of violence continues in San Francisco, our family and everyone else affected by this senseless crime and lack of accountability is traumatized, to be a victim of crime in San Francisco is a complete nightmare under District Attorney Boudin. This is just another example of how he is failing our community and the city of San Francisco. This isn’t justice for Jace, and this isn’t what our city deserves either. No family should ever go through what we are going through.

  3. Ron Johnson:

    I expect DHS and the Biden administration to brief Congress on the failures of our immigration system to detect this individual, if DHS does not, we will call on Senate Democrats to demand these officials testify before Congress.

  4. Wes Siegal:

    It’s easy, especially for someone, who has just raised capital, to fall into an idea of scheduling milestones and deliverables and distributing accountability for the work to different people on the team, but there is a failure often times when they do that, to stay focused on how all of these elements need to work together for the business to work as they envisioned, and to be able to catch signals as early as possible that would drive a pivot.

  5. Chief Executive Jeff Immelt:

    ... Complicated accountability, too much cost in the wrong places, excessive priorities and low market awareness. These are factors activists point to when they criticize companies. Shame on us if we need help from the outside to find this out.
