Women’s Initiative Programs

How can your organization get women to lean in and get ahead of the game?

Think about this:
4% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women, and 4% of players in the World Series of poker are women. Coincidence? We don’t think so.

PokerDivas can change those odds.

“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


Now more than ever before, it’s imperative for your company to encourage women’s leadership.

When women learn and play poker, they not only have fun but physically experience what it’s like to be bold and assertive. This immediacy teaches and sharpens the leadership skills needed for professional success far more quickly and effectively than a tedious how-to lecture.

Forget Chardonnay in the conference room and join us around a different kind of table. Men are welcome to attend as well; we bet they can learn a thing or two from each other! Poker is the new golf and women need to get into the game and take their rightful seat at the table.


Poker can help women:

  • Be a bold negotiator
  • Increase confidence and assertiveness
  • Gain insights into colleagues’ personalities and motivations
  • Deal with a bully
  • Experience the power of calculated risk-taking
  • Learn the value of friendly competition


“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.”

Denise Carkhuff, Partner, JONES DAY
