Women’s Initiative Programs

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

Think about this:

8% of Fortune 500 CEOs are women, and 5% of players in the World Series of poker are women. Coincidence? We don’t think so.

PokerDivas can change those odds.

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 and women

Poker can help women:

Gain insights into colleagues’ personalities and motivations

Experience the power of calculated risk-taking

Increase confidence and assertiveness

Learn the value of friendly competition

Deal with a bully

Be a bold negotiator

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.

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."
