About Convergence

Our Mission

We convene people and groups with conflicting views to build trust, identify solutions, and form alliances for action on critical national issues.

Who We Are

We are a lean, determined, 501c3 non-profit organization focused on solving social challenges through collaboration. We bring deep knowledge of policy and process and work with leaders and doers to move past divergent views to identify workable solutions to seemingly intractable issues. The Convergence team has been instrumental in tackling a range of social issues throughout careers spent in the public and private sectors. We are building on past successes to spread the word and the tools for use in solving a broad array of challenges.

What We Do

Founded in 2009, we convene people and groups with conflicting views to identify specific actions that will make a lasting difference. We get there through structured, facilitated dialogue and long-term relationship building. Our process builds trust and understanding and shifts the focus from conflict to action. The products of our continuous effort throughout the life of a project include breakthrough coalitions working toward transformative action and a renewed sense of what is possible through shared goals and long-term cooperation.
