Our Workshops Empower & Inspire

Have your team learn important skills from the best instructors.

These are a few of the partners benefiting from Poker Power corporate workshops.

Poker Power is a movement for women, by women. Through our global network, we have one goal in mind – to empower one million women with the skills required to play that predict success.

The company was founded by investor, business transformer, and mom of four, Jenny Just, who saw that the business world was desperate for more women’s leadership: “Things are better when women are involved.” As co-founder of multi-billion dollar investment firm PEAK6, she sees the advantages gaming brings to her own company’s traders, leaders and employees.

Women make up half the workforce, yet, only 24 percent of leadership positions and 7 percent of CEOs. Despite controlling 70 percent of household spending, women have very little control over corporate spending and decision-making at the upper echelons of business.

We know there is a strong connection between women’s success, money ownership, and the game of poker. Whether it’s gaining the confidence to ask for that big promotion, practice strategic-thinking through every new hand, or understanding risk management, Poker Power fosters these necessary skills so many women are without.

Professional poker player and Poker Power advisor Melanie Weisner says, “At Poker Power, we are teaching women to be better decision-makers, and that is the most empowering thing we can do.”

Poker Power is growing every day, reaching women through higher education partnerships, corporate workshops and lessons, and clubs for women of all ages. With your support, we will reach our goal of teaching one million women to play the game of poker.
