We’re proud of how this community has grown over the years and inspired by the conversations happening here. That’s why we’ve recently launched Gates Notes badges, a system to help us–and you–get to know your fellow Gates Notes Insiders.


What are badges?

Badges are a new system that we’re introducing to help you get to know other members of the Gates Notes community.
