OwnTrail users interact as a community that is there to support and lift each other up. Our community agreement is rooted in our core values:
- We encourage you to be transparent about your journeys and experiences.
- We facilitate authentic sharing, and celebrate the moments in our lives that are not “social media perfect.”
- Growth mindset
- We help you throw away the idea of one right path, and be open to new ideas and experiences in your life.
- We create an environment where you have the emotional safety to be vulnerable, and we make product decisions that don’t put your online safety at risk.
- We embrace the many identities and experiences that you hold, and build a platform that is inclusive of all of your needs and perspectives.
In order to create an experience that fosters these core values, all OwnTrail users need to follow some shared rules:
