Profile Picture

Fairygodboss’ mission is to help women achieve their career goals. We do this by making it easier for women to meaningfully connect and engage with each other about career-related topics. We follow these guidelines to ensure our community supports open connection and communication while creating a safe, inclusive environment.

Our Community Guidelines

Be yourself.

We invite users to be open about their identity and contribute conversations and content that help forge connections with others. We welcome both positive and negative angles on a given topic. Because we aim to have an authentic community, we remove accounts that represent a company or organization rather than a single person. 

Be inclusive.  

We welcome people of all genders, including those who do not identify with any gender, to explore what Fairygodboss has to offer. Male allies are encouraged to explain their male allyship position and/or intent within their profile and any community contributions they make. This explanation should be made to help others trust and feel more comfortable in our women-led community. 

Be meaningful.

We promote adding to the community through meaningful dialogue, content, and resources — ones that provide consistent and enriching experiences for our community members. As a community focused on helping women achieve their career goals, we encourage conversations that focus on career-related topics and advice.

We reserve the right to remove content that:

  • Promotes your business, paid and free offers, and other commercial endeavors.

  • Includes unsolicited commercial messages or excessively self-promotional content.

  • Does not include any connection to a career-related topic.

  • Attempts to artificially boost views and other metrics.

  • Includes off-domain redirects, cloaking or other ways of obscuring where a link leads.

  • Is not user-friendly in formatting (e.g. ALL CAPS or posts that are consistently incomprehensible).

  • Includes false information or misleading content or behavior.

Be respectful.  

Treat other members of the Fairygodboss community with respect by engaging in our community in a positive, productive manner. Please respect our business model and employer partners by not sharing job postings.

We reserve the right to remove content that:

  • Disrespects others with different cultural practices, attitudes and beliefs.

  • Promotes foul, obscene or sexually explicit language.

  • Encourages discrimination, violence or hate speech. 

  • Physically or sexually exploits people or promotes pornographic content, nudity or erotica.

  • Threatens or organizes violence or supports violent organizations.

  • Is used to buy or sell illegal drugs, contraband, counterfeit goods or illegal weapons.

  • Impersonates another person or organization.

  • Supports bullying, harassment or harmful advice of any kind.

  • Defames anyone or criticizes individuals by name who are not official representatives of their companies/organizations. 

Be safe.

To ensure the privacy and protection of others, refrain from sharing personal information or the information of anyone in or outside of the Fairygodboss community.  Do not share your password, let anyone access your account or do anything that might put your account at risk. Do not sell access to your account, username or otherwise transfer account features for compensation.

We reserve the right to remove content that:

  • Shares personally-identifying contact information, including email and phone numbers.

  • Shares personally identifiable information such as bank account numbers, health records, social security numbers or other information that could pose a risk to your safety and security.

  • Violates laws or regulations.

  • Accuses someone by name of committing a crime, unless it’s a publicly reported issue.

  • Infringes on anyone's intellectual property, privacy or other rights.

  • Uses a name, logo or trademark that does not belong to you.

Our Job Review and Content Guidelines

In keeping with Fairygodboss’ social mission to help women achieve their career goals, we follow certain guidelines to ensure that our anonymous job reviews are authentic, informative and valuable.  We rely 100% on our members to submit honest reviews and tips about their company culture and policies. We hope to see insights that reflect a balanced perspective that discusses both positives and negatives. 

We do not ask our users for their names and do not publicly disclose or display your email address to anyone. Every review is displayed anonymously.

Be constructive, not destructive.

Fairygodboss reviews and articles are not a place for users to discuss their personal grievances with managers or colleagues. We will remove reviews or content that contain hate speech, insults, derogatory or offensive language.

Be honest.

Be open about your perspective and experiences and focus on what it’s like being a woman in the workplace.  We never pay for reviews or try to influence them, nor do we remove reviews based on judgment or opinion because we have no basis to evaluate or arbitrate user-posted material. 

Be respectful.

Please respect any contractual obligations you may have with your employer, including non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements. Also please consider the tone of any language you use, even when you disagree with content. 

Be anonymous.

We believe in an individual’s right to privacy, so they can speak openly and honestly without fear of reprisal. In the interest of preserving anonymity, we reserve the right to remove or refrain from publishing personally identifying information (including usernames).

How You Can Help

We strive to allow content to be posted by anyone, however, once the content displays on the site it can be removed if it doesn’t resonate with our guidelines, Privacy Policy or Terms and Conditions. Community members can flag content they believe violates these guidelines so it can be addressed accordingly. If you have any questions or feedback, you can reach us at [email protected].
