On June 26, the Los Angeles Business Journal hosted the Women’s Council and Awards – a half-day event of inspiration, education, and recognition. The top business leaders in Los Angeles, California gathered to share their wisdom through a series of keynote speeches, dynamic panels, and workshops. The annual event honored the achievements made by powerful women who make a difference throughout Los Angeles. President of Altair Instruments, Brenda Acosta, won the prestigious “Entrepreneur Founder/Owner of the Year” award. With over 300 nominees, including Gillian Zucker of the LA Clippers, Christine Simmons from the LA Sparks, and Gold Medalist Jordyn Wieber, Acosta humbly accepted the impressive award. “It’s an honor to be among the most accomplished and distinguished female leaders,” Acosta said. Some could say this prestigious accolade could not have happened at a better time. DiamondTome will be celebrating its 20-year anniversary next year. Acosta has been working on the year-long marketing campaign to celebrate this anniversary.
