This paper addresses some the question of unseeing in board accountability in corporate governance. I propose that we approach accountability in terms of three questions: first, who deserves an account?; second, whose vulnerabilities are `morally interesting' to the account giver; and who, third, is empowered to intervene? These questions assist us taking note of how incidental accountability relationships not only form but can intrude on hitherto sequestered aspects of governance. The trouble with `unseen' populations is that unseeing them does not prevent them from coming to light.
