Converge’s work has its origins in 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. Such an approach rrecognizees the complexity and multidimensionality of issues related to human resource development, human and social capital and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI)in the biomedical, behavioral science and high demand STEM fields

As DICP’s research and evaluation arm, Converge conducts research studies that provide data as evidence from which knowledge-based interventions can be developed. Undergirding Converge’s work is the conviction that 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.
