Council on the Status of Women

February 27, 2023 | Talley Ballroom
5:15 – 6 p.m. – Reception and Silent Auction
6 – 7:30 p.m. – Dinner and Awards

The Sisterhood Dinner commemorates 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.

The 2023 Sisterhood Dinner theme is Re-envisioning an Equitable Workplace. 

Sixty years after the passage of the Equal Pay Act, true equity in the workplace remains elusive. Women continue to make less than their male counterparts, in general, while disparities in pay disproportionately impact women of color. At the same time, women – particularly women of color – have been expected to take on the invisible labor of mentorship, volunteer work, and other uncompensated roles within the academy. As we celebrate the 38th anniversary of the Sisterhood Dinner, our theme, “Re-envisioning an Equitable Workplace,” seeks to redefine how the University bridges the pay gap among its employees, equitably compensates for “invisible” labor, and honors and values the unique contributions of women across NC State University.   



Registration is now open until January 27th, unless tables are sold out prior to that date. There are two options to purchase tickets:

NOTE:  University Pcards are not to be used to pay for Sisterhood Dinner registration. Accepted payment options include university IDT, personal check, or personal credit card.
