The purpose of the Diamonds of Southbay Chapter is to bring together a diverse group of professional women in the South Bay area cities in support of the mission/vision of the Association which assist them in reaching their personal and professional goals.  The team supports the vision through attendance at local and council meetings., Association sponsored conferences and community events.


For more information, please contact chapter president Dee Kirtley at (310) 487-9579.

The Diamonds of Southbay chartered with the American Business Women's Association 16 years ago.  Since that time, we have built our chapter into a strong community of like minded women and men whose foal is to grow both professionally and personally.

Come join us for the first chapter meeting of the new ABWA calendar year.  Our guest speaker is our very own chapter president, Dee Kirtley, who will be speaking on Core Values for the workplace.

Come help us build the DiamondsofSouthbay as we continue to reach out into our local communities and share what ABWA can do for women and men of all backgrounds.

"Time" for our chapter members to take note! 

Have you signed up for the Community Connection?  It is a great way to stay connected to others in ABWA.  Go to abwa.org today, log in and become a part.

ABWA's fall membership campaign is underway.  What better way to grow our chapter than to invite someone to experience all that our association offers to women and men alike.  We encourage you, our chapter membership to invite a guest to be a part. 


Congratulations to this year's Top Ten Business Women of ABWA.  This is the highest honor awarded in our association.   They were recognized at the Top Ten luncheon at the National Women's Leadership Conference.
