PokerStars Becomes First Gaming Partner of ‘Women Who Code’

PokerStars, part of Flutter, has recently partnered with one of the largest global communities for women in technology, Women Who Code, to improve female representation and diversity and encourage women to grow their career within the gaming industry.

Women Who Code is dedicated to inspiring women to excel in technology careers and carefully select their partners to redefine the talent pipeline. Supporting intentional, strategic and impactful diversity and inclusion programmes, they create pathways to leadership within companies and the greater community.

PokerStars will now be included in Women Who Code’s newsletters, social media posts, blog posts, and events.

Associate Director of the Flutter Group Public Relations, Rebecca McAdam Willetts, said:

“We are proud to officially become the first gambling partner of Women Who Code and recognise the same values and desire to inspire women to excel in their technology careers. Together, we hold a vision of a world where women are proportionally represented as technical leaders, executives, founders, VCs, board members and software engineers.”

She added:

“At PokerStars we are allies to all the amazing women in the industry. Bet on yourself, join our team and make your next chapter the best one yet. Remember, all it takes is two words… I’m in.”

PokerStars aims high and wishes to be an organization truly representative of diversity. It intends to always foster an inclusive environment while celebrating, respecting, valuing and supporting differences.

When it comes to gaming itself, PokerStars is committed to the growth of poker itself by continuously striving to reach and engage new players from all walks of life. This includes the engagement of female poker players by shining a light on women in poker and in the industry through various activities.

PokerStars’ female community leads the way by ensuring its thoughts are heard through a dedicated insights community called Our Voices.
