In an empowering close to Women’s History Month 2021, Women You Should Know and Poker Divas are inviting women everywhere to take their seats at our table for MAKING BOLD MOVES on March 30. During this virtual and interactive experience, you will learn the game of poker as a metaphor for life. It’s not about gambling. It’s about gaining the confidence and skills to win big in life and business using the strategies of poker… even if you’ve never played.

Ellen Leikind, founder of Poker Divas, has made it her business, literally, to help women get what they want out of life… by teaching them how to use poker skills to excel in business and beyond. She learned poker as a girl from her mom, and is not a professional poker player. The acclaimed entrepreneur, author and speaker developed her signature PokerDivas program to teach women the game specifically for its strategic benefits in business and life. It’s an empowering ‘how to’ in building confidence, being a better negotiator, reading the competition, getting over a loss and moving on, dealing with a bully, and playing to win as opposed to avoid losing. Ellen’s work has impacted tens of thousands of women across the country over the last nearly two decades.

This empowering virtual event also honors all the women who had to bring their own seats to table throughout history, and whose bold moves were big wins for women, including our special guest, trailblazing firefighter and Board member of Monumental Women Brenda Berkman.
