A PokerDivas program promotes inclusivity and helps your team understand each other, bond as a group, and have fun at the same time!

Has anything like this ever happened to you or one of your co-workers?

  • A female employee is invited out for a networking event with male colleagues where big deals will be made. It’s at a cigar bar. She doesn’t smoke.
  • A new hire from another country joins a team where everyone else has been working together for years. The boss organizes a dinner to celebrate landing a new client; the new hire discovers that they weren’t invited.
  • A company HR director loves the outdoors and plans an Outward Bound excursion for the team. One of the team members has a heart condition and can’t do strenuous activity but is afraid to say no and miss out on a day of “mandatory” bonding.

At a PokerDivas program, all people are invited to a seat at the table.

Participants will experience their co-workers in a new way. Old perceptions will be challenged. Anyone can prove themselves, and everyone has an equal chance to come out on top.

Poker and your team

Poker will help your team to:

Create a culture where everyone is encouraged to participate

Gain insights into each other’s personalities and motivations

Look beyond politics, position, culture, and educational level

Shift their perceptions of each other and reduce unconscious bias

Bond, discover what they have in common, and have fun!

Our programs are not only effective but also fun!

Effective diversity and inclusion initiatives are PROVEN to be important to the success of a business. In order to be engaged, employees need to feel that a diversity program is something being done for them rather than to them.

Avoid this scenario!

Build diversity and inclusion activities that people WANT to attend!

Poker is open to everyone and can be learned by anyone

Poker is an inclusive game that everyone can play and anyone can learn. It doesn’t matter how fit you are, what you do, or where you are from. It’s perfect for clients, lawyers, accountants, financial service and tech professionals, salespeople, marketing executives, newly-formed teams, interns, and anybody who wants to win in business. Bringing teams together through PokerDivas builds camaraderie in an educational and entertaining environment.

How It Works

Most people who attend a PokerDivas program have never played the game before. You’ll learn how what makes you good in poker makes you good in business, and have fun learning the game via our special teaching technique. Programs are structured to offer opportunities for everyone to network and engage in friendly competition.

Some comments on our programs:

"We really wanted to help some of our female attorneys develop leadership skills. Who knew learning and playing poker would do just that!"
Courtney Byrne
Associate Corporate Attorney
"Knowing poker is a necessity to stay competitive professionally. It is a great way to get face time with clients. Similar to golf, it allows women to be at the table with potential clients that were previously off limits."
