Our Projects

Convergence tackles a range of complex national issues where we believe our dialogue-to-action methodology can lead to new ideas and solutions. We bring together stakeholders with diverse perspectives on an issue – business leaders, policy practitioners, non-profit executives, elected officials, think-tank experts, academics, and community leaders – to build relationships over time and work to identify and implement new pathways and solutions. Convergence projects lead to results including bipartisan federal and state legislation, public/private partnerships, public education and awareness campaigns, and grassroots networks.
