GitLab's Commitment to Employee Inclusion and Development

GitLab recognizes that to build a diversity initiative that resonates for our organization, we need to redefine it in a way that embodies our values and reinforces our global workforce. We also know that many diversity programs fail. Rather than focusing on building diversity as a collection of activities, data, and metrics, we're choosing to build and institutionalize a culture that is inclusive and supports all employees equally to achieve their professional goals. We will refer to this intentional culture curation as inclusion and development (i & d).

A Snapshot of GitLabber's Identities

We've asked employees to voluntarily share their identities so that we can understand more about the makeup of our organization. While diversity data can help us learn more about the effectiveness of our i & d activities and can act as a measurement of the success of our culture, we won't rely solely on this data to build our teams.
