Based in Austin, TX, HERdacity was founded in 2015 by Susan Combs, a former Texas Comptroller. Combs broke down barriers as the first woman elected to the position of Commissioner of the Texas Department of Agriculture in 1998. In founding HERdacity, her vision was "to dare women to be the women they want to be and achieve the dreams of their own lives."
Mary Flanagan, HERdacity’s president, and her team specialize in digital media, marketing, and event planning. Executives on HERdacity’s Board hail from industry and nonprofit fields with experience in strategy, nonprofit management, and career services.
