Oprah Winfrey TheaterSisterhood Agenda’s 25-year anniversary is a celebration of our work as a model of sisterhood sustainability.  We are a small 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization with a global agenda and substantive local impacts in communities that include over 5,000 global partners in 36 countries.  As an international leader, we inspire the work of our partners and constituents, and in turn, we are consistently inspired by YOU!

This intimate gathering is an invitation-only event.  It is a unique occasion to connect and re-engage Sisterhood Agenda and our global sisterhood network.

In attendance:  Sisterhood Agenda global partners, global girls, founders, community leaders, donors, friends and family, Sisterhood of Greatness Award representatives, and constituents who manifest the power of sisterhood and are committed to the agenda.

There is NO FEE to attend our gathering, which includes presentations, awards, a museum tour, museum access, and networking. You are responsible for your own travel, meals, and accommodations.

Based on limited availability, you can contact us if you were not invited as a member of our global sisterhood network. See you there!

Sisterhood Agenda’s first group of excellent young ladies graduate from A Journey Toward Womanhood in 1995.


  • Sisterhood Agenda was founded by Angela D. Coleman shortly after she completed her degrees at Princeton University and was motivated to do something about the issues that she studied, including, but not limited to, gender identity, cultural pride, racial identity, stigma, empowerment, social comparison, and self-esteem.
  • Starting out with our founder’s small initial financial investment and no funding or grants, Sisterhood Agenda relied solely on public donations, mostly given by parents of program participants, to implement its first program, A Journey Toward Womanhood.
  • Sisterhood Agenda has won at least one award every year of its existence, sometimes winning 2 or 3 per year, totaling over 30 agency awards.  Go Sisterhood Agenda!
  • In addition to its esteemed team of advisors, directors, employees, contractors, volunteers, and interns, Sisterhood Agenda is a multi-generational effort involving our founder, Angela D. Coleman, her mother, Bernice Coleman-Wike, and her daughter, Ayana Coleman-Dixon.
  • Sisterhood Agenda’s reach is massive:  with over 5,000 partners in 36 countries, the organization reaches over 2 million women and girls every year.
  • Sisterhood Agenda built its SEA:  Sisterhood Empowerment Academy on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands.  This unique eco-building is the only one of its kind with its female-centered dedicated safe spaces for health and healing.  In 2017, Sisterhood Agenda was awarded the Energy Global Award for the SEA:  Sisterhood Empowerment Academy.
