Starre Haas (’19) has been named the Trainer Engagement and Development Director at VoteRunLead, a nonprofit organization that trains women to run for political office and win.
Haas’ new role is driven by the growth of the organization’s trainer program, creating the need for a full-time position catered to establishing and overseeing the VoteRunLead trainer community.
Haas originally joined Vote Run Lead as a Program Coordinator as part of her International Public Service Project in New York City. Later, she became a National Program Manager, which linked with her Capstone project at the Clinton School. It was during this time that Haas developed what is now the VoteRunLead National Certified Trainer Recruitment Program, which has successfully increased the organization’s trainer pool to 125+ trainers nationwide.
As a student at the Clinton School of Public Service, Haas and a team of students worked with the Women’s Foundation of Arkansas to create the Gender Equity Scorecard, a tool to help Arkansas businesses improve gender equity in the workplace.
In addition to her Master of Public Service, Haas earned degrees in finance and accounting from UA Little Rock.
The Clinton School Speaker Series not only enhances the education of Clinton School students, but also provides a venue for the public to engage in intellectual discussions on the issues of the day.
