About Celebrating the Sistas

On March 18th, the Twin Cities will throw a celebration that is worthy of the greatness of 15 iconic Black women. 

Celebrating the Sistas focuses on celebrating accomplished Black women, primarily in corporate leadership. This night is about changing the narrative in our region and making a bold statement that we truly understand what it really took to reach these heights. 

That’s why this year, we’re going GLAM as a red carpet, black-tie gala event to say thank you to 15 Black icons that help make our region more attractive. 


The Twin Cities, and especially those in the room, will be able to hold its head up high as we show the rest of the nation how to celebrate Black women in a meaningful way during Women's History Month. 





Our Honorees

The 16th Annual Celebrating the Sistas Awards Ceremony, founded by Kevin Johnson, is Minnesota's premier event centered on recognizing the outstanding achievements of Black women. 


This year’s honorees have been selected based on their  track record of exceptional leadership and impact. The Twin Cities would not be the same without them.

These Icons represent the very best that the Twin Cities can be, and show aspiring Black women and girls that Minnesota can, in fact, be a great place to live and work.

But let's keep it 100. To be on this list, these women had to break through glass ceilings, persevere to overcome obstacles that few ever face, and be willing not to give up on our region. 

And for this, we honor these 15 spectacular Black women.
