Welcome to the Learning & Development (L&D) page at GitLab! L&D is an essential part of any organization's growth, success and overall business strategy. We want to support the growth of our GitLab team-members' competencies, skills and knowledge by providing them with the tools they need and also the opportunities to progress their own personal and professional development.
Live Learning sessions will be conducted on a monthly basis. There will be a Zoom video conference set up for each session. Official dates and topics will be added to the schedule as confirmed.
Action Learning sessions are designed to give team members a place to practice their skills.
Everyone's career development is different, but we have outlined what it can look like at GitLab.
If you have any language courses you would like to recommend or links to websites please add them to this section.
There is also a way to practice foreign languages and ask for advice in several Slack channels, each dedicated to a specific language. You can find all these channels by searching for channels starting with #lang. If you're missing a channel for your target language, feel free to create one and mention it in #company-announcements so that fellow GitLab team-members can join too!

Questions related to growth and development on the semi-annual Engagement Survey have a favorable score. The exact target is to be determined.
Total number of promotions in a rolling six month period/total number of employees. The target for this is to be determined.
This is calculated the same as 12 month voluntary team member turnover KPI but is using the number of team members actively choosing to leave GitLab to growth and development related reasons only. The target is to be determined.
