Save the Date! The South Bay Business Women’s Association Presents its Annual Conference “Women of Impact & Influence” on May 5, 2017

The Board of the South Bay Business Women’s Association is excited to announce its fourth-annual South Bay Business Women’s Conference. This inspirational event centers on awarding scholarships to deserving South Bay women to pursue degrees in business. It is also an opportunity for education, motivation and networking with new like-minded connections. This year, the Conference will take place on Friday, May 5 at the Torrance Marriott.


The day includes two dynamic keynote speakers, informative breakout sessions, an inspirational panel, a lovely lunch, plus plenty of opportunities to connect with other businesswomen. SBBWA President Janice Gallardo Walters notes: “It has been a unique pleasure watching the South Bay Women’s Conference empower local students in increasingly profound levels for each of the three years the Conference has existed. The highlight of our Conference—even more compelling than the inspiring speakers we engage—is the awarding of the scholarships to South Bay women, each of whom brings a range of skills and aspirations that capture our imagination. I invite you to be a part of an event that creates positive impact on an immediate and local level.”
