Founder + Director, Lady Boss
Director of Programs & Events, LMHQ
Tracy Candido founded LadyBoss due to many coffee- and cocktail-fueled conversations with her lady friends about work. A common theme was emerging – we all wanted to get ahead but felt we may die trying. One warm autumn afternoon in 2014 Lady Boss was conceived, and the rest, as they say, is herstory (ha).
In addition to laying the LadyBoss groundwork, Tracy is a New York-based creative events director and strategic partnerships maven, developing experiential and participatory programs. She is currently the Director of Programs and Events at LMHQ, run by the Alliance for Downtown NY. Her body of work includes independent and commercial projects, and clients have included big brands, creative agencies, start-ups, museums and
non-profits. She has an MA in Visual Culture Theory from NYU, and a BA in Visual Media Studies from Emerson College.
