Welcome to OwnTrail! OwnTrail is the peer support system centered on women, structured by our authentic life paths. Through OwnTrail, you'll find real-life inspiration, own your story with confidence and build meaningful connection — all to help you realize your power.

OwnTrail members interact as a community that is there to support and lift each other up. Our community agreement is rooted in our core values:
- When we can be ourselves on our own terms, everyone benefits. Save the filters and the fillers, forget “social media perfect” — we show up as real multi-faceted human beings without apology.
- There’s beauty — and power — in our many identities and experiences. We create space for women to be equally valued, in full acknowledgment that gender is not binary, without centering a single specific identity or experience.
- Authentic, meaningful experiences require safe space and informed choice. Emotional, physical and digital safety are non-negotiable — and we collectively foster an environment where all can thrive.
- Our development and learning are never complete. As we reject the idea of one right path, we embrace a growth mindset, stay open to new possibilities and view failure and feedback as part of the process.
- Confidence and accountability are necessary for relationships with ourselves and our community. Trust is a two-way street required to build empathy, experience solidarity and take action.
In order to create an experience that fosters these core values, all OwnTrail users need to follow some shared rules:
- Do not engage in behaviors that could be considered harassment, bullying, stalking, intimidating, assaulting, or any kind of mistreatment of others.
- Do not disclose information about others unless they have given you permission to do so.
- Do not disclose private or proprietary information that you do not have the right to share.
- Do not share content that would be considered obscene, pornographic or violent.
- Do not solicit money or other items of value from another user, whether as a gift, loan, or form of compensation.
- Do not share views that would be considered harmful or discriminating towards any identity, including race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.
- Only share content that you have the rights to share, such as text that you wrote and photographs that you took. If you did not create the content that you are sharing, you must have permission to share it.
- Do not share other people’s personal contact information (such as address, phone number or email address). We would also recommend not sharing this about yourself.
