In a few short years, GATE has built a strong foundation for bringing key gender insights to impact through game-changing guidance building a better and inclusive society for tomorrow.

With visionary philanthropic support, we will amplify and expand on this impact. Together, by raising a total of $10 million to build a robust research, education and community outreach program, we can set the future course of gender equality in our economy — both within Canada, and around the world.

“GATE is doing research that hasn’t been done before. Their findings and insights are crucial to understanding how we can increase equality and inclusivity in our organizations.”

Jonathan Lister (BA ‘94, MBA ‘00) Vice President of Global Sales, LinkedIn

Our supporters are motivated to co-create a world-leading institution that advances the world’s understanding of challenges related to gender in the economy. Together, we are creating solutions that will result in lasting, disruptive change.
