Girl Boss Chess is the first international organization dedicated to closing the gender gap in the male-dominated sport of chess. Every day, we experience first-hand the positive effects of chess in the development of girls and recognize its potential in developing the next generation of women leaders. This mission is at our core and guides everything we do.
From classrooms to boardrooms, we believe every girl can thrive in life with the same confidence as a brave pawn in its opening move. We partner with schools and organizations that empower girls to deliver an innovative chess curriculum designed to empower students with the skills needed to help face today’s challenges and take on tomorrow’s world.
In every Girl Boss Chess lesson, you can feel the enthusiasm and creative energy of our women educators. Our signature teaching style pairs learning and fun as we take our students from beginners to the highest levels of chess. Students are encouraged to ask questions, express ideas and solve problems, supported by teachers who are experts in their fields.
