Building Inclusion in the
Sciences Through Research

Converge gathers, expands, disseminates and utilizes knowledge related to human resource development and human capital in the biomedical, behavioral science and high demand science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. Of particular interest are groups that are traditionally underrepresented in these fields.

Converge generates knowledge through:

  • Conducting rigorous, theory-based scientific research
  • Linking policy and practice with scientific evidence
  • Instituting and convening transdisciplinary stakeholder groups

Knowledge is created by Converge to advance social equity, inclusive excellence and economic competitiveness.

Converge is funded (in part) by the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation.
