Empowering Us to Greatness!

JoAnn Osby                                                   President

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.
