Friday night I attended “High Heels in High Places” which was presented by NABFEME, the National Association of Black Female Executives in Music & Entertainment, Inc.  This FREE event was held at the Nemours Building in Wilmington and was sponsored by Sisterent.com.

Johnnie Walker, President and CEO of NABFEME kicked off the evening with a brief description and stated the the mission of NABFEME, which “was created to be a vehicle of support that would increase the awareness and raise the profile of minority women in entertainment.”

Demia Avery, owner of Avery Sisters Entertainment was the MC and sat on the dais with 10 empowered women representing industries and positions that included:  Sales and Hospitality; Entrepreneurship; Authors; Music and Concert Promotion; Fashion; Life Empowerment Coach; Entertainment Attorney; and Recording Artists.

Panelist of High Heels in High Places

Friend and owner of Mejah Books, Emylyn DeGannes was one of the panelist, and you may remember her from a previous feature on my blog (click here).

This 3-hour interactive event was a “power surge” from ladies-in-the-know to help others grow.  The audience participation was lively with great questions and observations as well as few light hearted comments from a man in attendance. 

Don’t Try It – Just Do It” was one of the well received catch phrases, “Mentors Are Angels in Disguise”; “Live Out Your Passion and You’ll Never Work” and “Stand and Be Still – With God Nothing is Impossible” were the major themes throughout the night and struck a cord with many of the attendees.

The evening ended with networking, exchanging of cards and group photos.  It was a great event and I would like to thank Avery Sister Entertainment for bringing NABFEME to Wilmington and look forward to other empowering events in Delaware.

    I would love to listen to these women! I’m hoping there’s some here in Sacramento. I just need to search harder. I think it’s wonderful that these women mentor and inspire other women to excel in the fields or careers that they’ve chosen.

      Check out their website because they have events all over the country with different speakers at each location. We can also use a mentor at one time or another. Happy Thankful Thursday!
