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.

The Sisterhood Dinner celebrates the contributions and accomplishments of NC State women.  This years theme is “Empowering Women Together”.  We hope that you will join us for this annual event.  Event registration information can be found below.  Table registration is $300 for 8 seats.  Individual registration is $35 per seat.
In addition to entertainment and a keynote speaker, The 2017 Equity for Women Awards will also be given out during the Sisterhood Dinner.  It is not too late to nominate a deserving faculty, staff or student for their outstanding leadership in establishing equity for women at NC State University. Nominations are solicited from all members of the campus community. This year, we will be awarding up to three individuals.

Not sure whom to recommend?  Think about faculty, staff and students of any gender who are passionate, ambitious, inspired, courageous, and strong leaders with a commitment to advocacy of gender equity in everyday life at NC State University. Nominees should demonstrate excellence in one or more of the following areas over the past 12 months:

  • Leadership: Taking action to promote gender equity on and beyond campus through leadership roles

  • Service: Supporting equity for women through job-related or voluntary roles

  • Scholarship: Contributing new knowledge and informing policy and practice related to women’s well-being and equality


Criteria for rating these areas will be based on commitment to leadership, service, and/or scholarship as well as the impact of the nominee’s efforts. Please note: Current members of the Council of the Status of Women are not eligible for the award and should not be nominated. Please check the current roster if you aren’t sure who is on the council.

If you have questions regarding either the Sisterhood Dinner or the Equity Awards, please contact the Women’s Center at 919-515-2012.


Registration is now closed and all tables are full. We hope to see you at the event or next year!
