When my fiancee and i also moved to San Francisco, she was very excited about finding new friends and joining existing groups just for fun activities and hobbies. She happily proceeded meetup.com and pointed out that there were very few small or medium-sized events. Moreover, most of the groups was required to charge their members some small fees for carrying on in order to cover the price tag on creating the event, since Meetup charges a high fee for organizing events and maintaining groups.
Immediately a lightweight went of in my head. I understand the Meetup has got to pay their number of employees, servers and a workplace. But that is besides the point, as my fiancee i would like to be part of a group without finances acquiring it the way. She simply wanted a pleasant and safe environment for many local women to have interaction.
I feel that this 's what has to be done with a wider scale. With all the rise of online communities today, you will want to create free and open platforms for females and other groups to have interaction in a nice and supportive environment.
My feeling is while women do support their community a lot, the current state of that community still breeds a great deal of competition and insufficient mutual collaboration over a wide or medium scale.
For example, many mothers group become hand-me-down clothes sales attempts rather than what they were originally intended to do: build a helpful and positive group where mothers can share their experiences along with other moms who may happen to live nearby.
From the professional environment, there's a similar situation. Women find their competitors to be other women and that breeds an absence of collaboration.
I am hoping that continue there will be more small , medium-sized groups for women in which the goal will be mutual help.
