Change the Climate Before Changing the Weather

A presentation at RubyConf 2022 in in Houston, TX, USA by Ben Greenberg

Unless you’re self-employed you work for a system. That system is comprised of its own culture in decision making, inclusivity, and a lot more. As one person in a system how can you make an impact on it? Sometimes you can’t change the weather, but you can change the climate in your own room. You may even find that if you change the temperature in enough rooms, surprisingly, you end up changing the weather. In this talk, we’ll discuss a process of systems change that is ground up, going from the micro to the macro. You’ll leave more empowered to start changing the climate in your own workplace.
