>> For more than a decade, Convergence has been facilitating nonpartisan collaborations among leaders in politics, business, and the non-profit sector to produce recommendations that effect meaningful change in the lives of Americans.
>> Our goal is twofold: to identify actionable solutions to urgent problems facing Americans today, and to strengthen American democracy by fostering a culture of collaboration and bridge-building across differences.
>> Convergence’s evidence-based approach to collaborative dialogue is informed by continued advances in contact theory, neuroscience, and psychology, and it’s refined by more than a decade of successful practice. We know how to forge trust among even the most improbable collaborators.
Convergence’s success offers a beacon of hope for the majorities of Americans frustrated by divisiveness that change is not only possible, but that we have the tools and the knowledge to bridge even the starkest divides with consistency. In addition, our success highlights the rich set of tools, practices, and resources that others can use to achieve similar successes.
