NABFEME is honored to be associated with and to have profiled some of the most famous and successful women in music and entertainment. However, we also realize there are thousands of women throughout our global stratosphere – while not in the entertainment industry – are making an impact in their own way, in their own communities, in their own professions, fields or businesses. NABFEME established High Heels in High Places as an acknowledgment to all women of achievement. High Heels in High Places represents strong, cutting-edge career women who through courage, resilience and wisdom have helped to redefine the positioning of women in the workplace and women in music and entertainment. These women have made significant career achievements with few role models or mentors… and sometimes with little social support. They are the NABFEME trailblazers; women who seized the moment, took advantage of emerging opportunities and helped create new standards, thus becoming prototypes for professional career growth. We have an opportunity to learn from their experiences and enable ourselves to develop stronger and more definitive careers.
High Heels in High Places not about showcasing super stars or well-known women. Rather it is about typical career women who represent untypical career advancement circumstances. You will be inspired, shocked, amused and amazed by their stories. And, by sharing their career journeys, NABFEME strives to honor these women for their ability, while allowing you to grow from their success and experiences.
