Upcoming Meetings/Events

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.



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.

"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 today, log in and become a part.

The Diamonds of Southbay's 17th Anniversary Celebration was a huge success thanks to you, our chapter members.  We had 74 people in attendance as we honored Diamond in the Sky recipients, our protégé award winner, Chapter Woman of the Year and more.  Thank you to all that participated!

Our chapter needs you.  We have elections in May and are looking for officers.  Please consider taking a leadership role in ABWA.  Contact any board member for additional information.
