On the previous episode, we approached the subject of chapter culture. This episode continues that conversation with someone who takes deep dives into chapter culture through his research. The episode defines culture, explores social identity, what it means for organizations to have subcultures, how new members impact culture, and what productive leadership looks like in a chapter.
