Convergence was founded in 2009 to offer an alternative solution for addressing urgent social and policy issues that were bogged down in disagreement and discord. Drawing from decades of experience solving difficult policy issues, Convergence was formed to use dialogue and collaboration to generate breakthrough solutions to important yet intractable problems. And it is working. Convergence is now at a turning point. With our proven process generating workable solutions to four challenging issues, we want to do more. By 2020, our plan calls for:
- 10 projects of national consequence completed or under way
- Implementation of key action programs identified by our project teams
- R&D into new areas of focus
- Development of a turnkey toolkit for organizations looking to adopt a culture of collaborative problem solving.
