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.
