Sisterhood Dinner to Add Day of Activities to Evening Festivities
News from the Provost
Attendees arriving at the annual Sisterhood Dinner glance toward tables set with flowers and elegant place settings and quickly realize they’ve stepped into a very special event.
Held every year to celebrate the accomplishments of NC State women, the Sisterhood Dinner provides a night of fine dining, education and entertainment for hundreds of attendees. Enjoyed by NC State women and plenty of other guests, the night is highly anticipated each spring.
The theme of this year’s dinner is “Speaking Truth through Our Stories.” The theme highlights voices that are often marginalized. By providing space to celebrate and uplift different voices and stories we are able to strengthen the fabric that makes us NC State.
During this year’s celebration, participants will hear from a student participant in the Women’s Center’s Politics of Black Hair project as well as Mandy Carter, a social justice advocate with 51-year history of working with social, racial and LGBTQ justice organizations. This year’s event is set to be uplifting, motivating and inspirational.
The Sisterhood Dinner will be held on Monday, February 26, 2018 in the State Ballroom, Talley Student Union. The dinner is sponsored by the Council on the Status of Women, NC State Foundation and the NC State Women’s Center. Table registration is $300 for eight seats. Individual registration is $35 per seat. Register by Friday, February 16, 2018.

New for 2018, the Council on the Status of Women has expanded the traditional Sisterhood Dinner with a daytime event.
