Literally on the heels of the last "I wish GitLab was cool": asking their saleswomen to wear short skirts and high heels, then hiding the follow-up discussion.

Previously: GitLab drives out their female execs.
Previously: GitLab doesn't see how politics should determine who to take on as a customer.
Previously: All the same, no hiring people from China, Russia, or Ukraine.
Previously: Plans to put in detailed user telemetry until forced to backtrack.

They're VC-funded... trying to be the opposite of GitHub could pay off.

@zachdecook As in "now both GitHub and GitLab have a history of dealing badly with women"?

Transparency helps, since the scandals get out before getting big*.

@zachdecook Ah, wait, you're seeing being VC funded as positive. I don't think there is a common ground to our conversation.

@rixx I think that has been blown up. Though I won't deny its strange to say short dresses.

@jordan31 I think a high rate of female employees leaving, combined with a message like this, shows an icky attitude I would not feel comfortable with. I had considered sending in an application to GitHub in the past, and I would not consider it currently.
