“Personal accountability is where it all starts.”

Blair Glencorse has a dream. He dreams of a world in which resources are used wisely, decisions benefit everyone fairly, and people lead secure lives. A world in which those in power act with integrity and accountability. Blair is not only dreaming about this, however; he is changing things for the better.

Through his organization Accountability Lab, he is catalyzing a new generation of citizens and responsible leaders around the world by helping them develop and implement positive ideas for integrity in their communities. One successful way of doing this is the TV program “Integrity Idol,” which draws millions of viewers. Recently launched in South Africa, it aims to inspire a national movement to honor, encourage, and connect honest civil servants. The show’s finale will be part of the BMW Foundation Global Table in Cape Town in May 2018.
