The Sisterhood Dinner celebrates the contributions and accomplishments of NC State women. It was originally called the Susan B. Anthony Dinner but was changed in 1999 to the Sisterhood Dinner to encompass all aspects of the achievements of women.

5:15pm  Reception
6:00pm  Dinner and Equity Awards

The theme for the 2019 Sisterhood Dinner is “Leading Change; Inspiring Action”. From movements such as #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo, to the midterm elections producing one of the most diverse classes of incoming elected officials in recent history, the momentum towards leading efforts for social change is both visible and inspiring. Help us to center and uplift the movements, work and leadership of Women. This year’s Sisterhood Dinner theme is intended to not only showcase those in our community who are doing the work to create social change, but to challenge all participants to be instigators of change. We all have a role to play in creating a more equitable and just campus and community.

NC State’s own Wolfpack Pickers will perform at the reception prior to the dinner.
