Women of all ages are empowered by the group to be future leaders by developing certain skills through the game, such as risk assessment, strategy, discipline, etc.

Erin Lydon is the General Manager and Managing Director of Poker Powher who stated that the group is dedicated to helping women stack their skills by teaching and practicing the game of poker. The tournament will provide individuals with female poker pros and teachers who inspire women to play the game.

For World College Poker, the group provides free play tournaments for the college-age crowd. World College Poker and Poker Powher work together to help women learn more about the game and see more women take part in the game.
