In an attempt to provide a “respectful and inclusive workplace,” Under Armour employees will no longer be allowed to pay for strip club visits on the company credit card.

The trips, which were reportedly made with coworkers and athletes, were “symptomatic of practices women at Under Armour found demeaning,” according to the Wall Street Journal.

“We have addressed these serious allegations of the past and will continue to address workplace behavior that violates our policies,” Under Armour said in a statement. “Inappropriate behavior that challenges our values or violates our policies is unacceptable – and will not be tolerated. We are committed to providing a respectful and inclusive workplace.”

The newspaper cited at least a dozen employees who criticized the recruitment practice, which was also reportedly used by CEO Kevin Plank.

Of six executives listed on Under Armour’s website, no women hold top positions, but the company said about half of its employees are female.
