14 Surprising Stats About Women in the Workplace

While women have made great strides to close the gender gap, there's still much to be done regarding pay, promotion, and leadership.

Since the onset of COVID-19, we’ve grown accustomed to all-day loungewear, our new hybrid work life, and the ever-changing landscape of social norms, but nothing could have prepared us for the drastic jump in gender gap statistics. In a matter of 12 short months, the gender gap between men and women increased by 36 years: that’s parity in pay, education, and job opportunity. We’ll need an edge to close that gap, and poker might just be that edge.

So, why poker? Why not?  Poker is a medium for confidence, strategy, negotiation, behavioral science, and risk assessment. These skills are fundamental when competing for jobs, internships, closing deals, and asking for what you deserve.
