Sowers is the recipient of the Bill Walsh Diversity fellowship which aims to increase the number of full-time NFL minority coaches. 

Sowers was the second woman in NFL history to hold a full-time coaching position and the first to coach in the Super Bowl. She was on the sidelines of Super Bowl LIV when the Chiefs defeated the 49ers.  She is also the NFL's first openly gay coach.
