Meetups are low-quality networking in my experience. Ironically, I had better success with career oriented nonprofits aligned towards a specific racial demographic. The crowd was more serious as far as career development than the meetups.

I’m part of the asian demographic, so I could help there, but wouldn’t know for others. Finding out about the others is a google search away.

Several likes but no suggestions yet. So many ppl have recommended meetups, but the few that I’ve been to alone were not for me.

Would love to know if others have been to good ones?
