Community Guidelines


The Women in Focus online community belongs to you. So be a good citizen and take a moment to check out these guidelines. They'll help to make this a place where we can inspire, inform and connect with each other, and have a little fun along the way.

The good

  • Inform. We're here to learn from each other, so if you have tips for the community, be sure to share them, either by joining in a discussion, starting  a personal blog, or posting an article. If you already have an article you'd like to post, here's how to do it. To find out more ways to engage in the community see here!
  • Share. If you come across an article or blog post that inspires you, don't keep it to yourself. Feel free to share it with your own networks on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
  • Create. We love fresh and unique content, so put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and get writing! Even better, start a blog of your own.
  • Connect. The member directory is there for you to connect to other businesses and promote your own. You can also market your business in the directory and your own profile. As a member you will have access to exclusive content and networks in the members’ hub.
  • Market Place. You can promote your business by creating an offer in the Market Place for other community members. It's a great way to connect with potential customers and get your business noticed.

The not so good

  • Sneaky advertising. There are plenty of opportunities to promote your business to the community — but articles, discussion posts and blog comments are not the places to do it. Advertisements pretending to be comments and articles will only backfire on you by irritating potential customers.
  • Questions and comments about bank products. We'd love to answer your questions and hear your feedback, but your fellow community members might not be so interested. So if you need help or you'd like to tell us what you think, call us anytime at  
  • Personal information. It's important to respect your own and others’ privacy by not revealing personal information — including account details, home addresses and tax file numbers.

The ugly

  • Venting. Constructive comments are always welcome, but venting and personal attacks are not. If you see abuse, report it. If we see abuse, we’ll delete it.
  • Offensive language. We have a pretty sensitive comment filter that gets offended very easily. If our filter catches your comment it’s unlikely to make it into print. Please be polite and try not to cause offense.
  • Legal hassles. Any comments that may be defamatory, infringe copyright or otherwise land anyone in hot water will not be published, so please refrain from writing them.
  • Spam. The Spam Act 2003 makes it illegal to send unwanted emails and SMSs, so please don't do it.
