What We Stand For In Our Heels


Humble –When a member inquires about a service/product you offer you are more than welcome to introduce yourself, but we want to stay away from constant self-promotion to help control content. Only one post a month will be permitted to promote your company.   

Encouragement- We are women supporting other women. We welcome shout outs! Raise? New job? New home? New pet? We celebrate it all! 

Excellence – Looking for a referral or lead in events, we have the resources. We have the top talent in Nashville.

Leadership- Looking for a mentor or mentee in the industry, we can help facilitate. 

Service – “Your greatness is not what you have, it is what you give.” We will volunteer our time quarterly to  local charities here in Nashville.

Heels & Healing

Every quarter the women of Heels & Handshakes gives back to a charity. This past October our happy hour was called "Bev, Boobies & the Bobby." The Bobby Hotel hosted us, Bev donated their canned rose to us and we donated $300 towards Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
