The Diamonds of Southbay chartered with the American Business Women's Association in the year 2000.  Since that time, we have built our chapter into a strong community of like minded women and men whose goal is to grow both professionally and personally.

Plan to join us for our chapter meetings each month..  Our chapter is growing and we would love to have you grow along with us.

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.

Congratulations to the Diamonds of Southbay on their 18th anniversary event honoring community partnerships, the league Woman of the Year, Sparkle Award recipients and more.  The success of events like this are because we come together as a team - thank you to the anniversary chairs and all participants.

​May is election month for our new chapter year effective August 1st.  Please consider taking the next step in your leadership journey by serving on the league board.  Please contact any current board members for more information.
