2020/2021 Diamonds of Southbay Board

Dee Kirtley


Karen Oliver



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.

Empowering Us to Greatness!

Please note that once in person meetings begin again and you pay for your meeting through Paypal, you will need to add an additional $2 to offset the cost of the service fee.  

Help support the Diamonds of Southbay by asking your family members, co-workers and friends to join us as we reimagine our future in ABWA.  It is a great time to make a difference in the lives of woman and men too as we grow together.

Take note that our league is still in need of an executive board for the new league year which begins on August 1.  Contact any board member if you are interested in continuing your leadership journey.
