Every year, our Matters of the Mind event brings leaders who are changing the world to Gateway, each with a different perspective on the social issues that make our shared work to educate the next generation so very important. For 2022, we are delighted to welcome comedian, TV host, author, and documentarian W. Kamau Bell, along with author and educator Kate Schatz, who have partnered to create the new book Do the Work: An Antiracist Activity Book. Together with our moderator Ariana Proehl from KQED, they'll discuss how we can all approach social justice work with not just urgency, but joy.

The Great Gateway Gathering
Our signature family fundraiser also happens to be one of the best parties of the year! While in recent years this event has taken place online, we're thrilled to be able to party in person with you again in 2022! Learn all about this year's format, venue and tickets!
Conversations for Impact
Held throughout the year, this intimate series of panel conversations brings local experts and distinguished alumni to the Gateway campus for lively discussions with Executive Director Sharon Olken on a variety of topics facing our schools and communities. Past events have covered COVID-19's impact on the workplace and student engagement, collaboration in the public ed sector, and much more. Events and panelists for the 2021-22 school year will be announced soon.
Gateway Alumni Trivia-thon
One of Gateway's newest traditions is also one of our most fun! Our annual Trivia-Thon pits teams of GHS alumni and supporters against one another in an adults-only, no-holds-barred test of wit and wisdom.
