Why be a chapter leader?

What’s a chapter? Hear from our Chapter Leaders about being part of the Culture First community.


Play a lead role in the Culture First movement to empower those around you to create a better world of work and to be the change.


What does it mean to be Culture First?
For organizations to grow and thrive, the world of work has to work better for People. Being ‘Culture First’ is about recognizing this simple truth – and then finding ways to act on it. It’s easier said than done, but we’ve found something that helps tremendously – working through issues as a community.
