What is transparency?  

The Global Summit V program will explore all aspects of the idea of transparency, starting here with our own particulars:

  • Our organization [Open Working Budget] welcomes public comment, along with time, monetary, and in-kind donations to meet needs
  • Post event proceeds support ongoing projects of The Global Summit’s producing non-profit, Empowerment WORKS
  • Annual expenditures and revenue of Empowerment WORKS are public [on its Guidestar.org profile]


  • We blend sociocracy & holacracy organizational models to support collective intelligence and team accountability
  • To share as much information in the most accessible way we can, we use Telegram for our team communication
  • Here is our Trello board where you can see our team progress and collaboration Trello.com/theglobalsummit
