Recognizing the complexity and multidimensionality of issues related to human resource development and human and social capital in the biomedical, behavioral science and high demand STEM fields, Converge is guided by Diversity Inclusion: A New Systems-Based Institutional Transformation Framework. The Diversity Inclusion Framework is built on the desire to transform institutions so that they can more fully capture and leverage the human and social capital required to achieve mission. Diversity Inclusion is about the collective capacity of an institution to achieve its mission.

Proactive, targeted, integrated, collaborative and measurable long-term policy, research, practice and communication strategies are required to accomplish the goals of achieving a diverse workforce and an inclusive society.
