2016/2017 Diamonds of Southbay Board

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.

Changing Women’s Lives
One Woman at a Time.

Upcoming Meetings


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! 

Congratulations to the DiamondsofSouthbay for achieving the Striving for Best Practices award for the 2015/2016 chapter year.  We will be recognized for our achievement at the National Women's Leadership Conference in Chattanooga, TN October 28th during the Best Practices ceremony.
