This virtual stakeholder convening will announce the launch of CONVERGENCE Columbus, a new cross-sector partnership focused on increasing minority homeownership in Columbus, Ohio.

At this virtual forum, members of CONVERGENCE Columbus will:

• Outline the strategic objectives of CONVERGENCE Columbus, including preliminary goals, strategies, and tactics.
• Introduce the current stakeholders and their roles, including opportunities for additional stakeholders to participate going forward.
• Describe the long-term vision for this effort, including the opportunities to make an impact in the short- and mid-term.
• Invite input and dialogue on how local and national stakeholders can collaborate in Columbus to close the racial wealth gap through homeownership opportunity and stability.
