Up Your Game!

Event Description

Celebrate International Women's Day by joining Women in Math (WiM) and Women in Computer Science (WiCS) for a fun game night to learn poker with the UW Poker Club and chess with the UW Chess Club! 

Did you know only about 5% of professional poker players and 15% of all the licensed chess players are women? We are working to decrease these gaps by creating a safe and encouraging environment for all levels to learn. Learn how to apply skills used in these games such as confidence, calculated risk-taking, and critical thinking to the real world.

Come out on March 8th from 4:00-6:00 pm to Up Your Game in poker and chess. All levels are welcome! The event is open to all genders, faculty, students, staff, postdocs and other members of the university. The event will take place in the MC 5501.
