Angela, on behalf of the two million women and girls that we serve in the country, we thank you for all that you have done, not only within the U.S. but outside of our borders.  Your beauty and brilliance shine bright.  We are honored to partner with you and we wish you continued success.

The Sisterhood Agenda empowers girls at a local level throughout the world through their network of organizations they train to reach, educate, and support these girls. Additionally, they provide their content and training directly online and in-person. One of the things that impressed me the most is the 10-year study they conducted that provided evidence that their approach delivers meaningful results for the girls they touch.

Angela is the most unassuming force for women empowerment and leadership, embodying positive energy, calming hope, and untethered dedication to her mission. I can’t recommend Sisterhood Agenda enough.
