Community Guidelines

We are a community dedicated to helping people at all stages of their career navigate their product careers.

These Community Guidelines will help you and your fellow Product People get the most of your time in Launch! Let’s dive in:

  1. Be Respectful & Inclusive - We’re here together to create a welcoming and supportive environment. Let’s treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required.
  2. Community Comes First - Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind isn’t allowed, and degrading comments about things like race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender or identity will not be tolerated. Build relationships, elevate others and lead with integrity
  3. Respect Everyone’s Privacy - Being part of this group requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private. What’s shared in the group should stay in the group.
  4. No Self-promotion, Advertising or Spam - We ask that members refrain from using Product School digital spaces for self-promotion, advertising, solicitation, promoting products or services, or posting unsolicited outside links. If you have information that you believe would benefit the community, we ask that you include it in the text of your original post rather than referring to another site. If you would like the community to be aware of your professional website, blog, newsletter offerings, published books, etc., please be sure to share links to them in the Introduction section of your Launch! profile or introduction thread. This enables anyone who’s interested in your work and experience to quickly and consistently find your information.
  5. Just Launch! - Take initiative, be generous and add value to the community before seeking value from others. Stay curious, open-minded, and build your profile from the ground up!
