“The nonprofit Convergence Center for Policy Resolution brings together stakeholders who disagree on a social challenge. They select participants who are open-minded, build them into a community based in trust, and give that community tools and guidance on how to work past differences to create policy solutions. The stakeholders take on tough topics like gun control, misinformation and health care. People are deeply divided on these issues, yet Convergence helps them come together to make real change happen.”
Eva Chiang, Managing Director of Leadership and Programming at the George W. Bush Institute, writes on ways to disagree better and accomplish real change.
