Virtual Diablo Women 2020

Each year, Diablo magazine celebrates women and their contributions to the community by dedicating editorial coverage to topics important to women. The Diablo Women event gives Diablo Women advertisers, the female community, and business leaders the opportunity to learn something new and to be inspired. On July 14, 2020, Diablo magazine's editor hosted a happy hour conversation with these amazing women who shared how they are inspired to stay strong, healthy, and optimistic and how they are continuing to inspire others to do the same: 

Natalie Coughlin: Olympian, cookbook author, and vintner

Kristi Yamaguchi: Olympian and founder of the Always Dream Foundation

Angie Carmignani: CEO of the Taylor Family Foundation

Kimberly Bryant: Founder and CEO of Black Girls Code

Nina Meehan: Executive Artistic Director of the Bay Area Children's Theatre
