S2, E26 Rina Shah Brings Women Into Leadership Positions In Politics And Business #convoswithliana

A political adviser and social entrepreneur based in Washington, DC, Rina has been nationally-recognized as a political insider and astute businesswoman. Prior to launching Rilax Strategies – a government and public affairs practice – she served as a senior staffer to two Republican Members of U.S. Congress. Her expertise includes speech-writing, building winning strategies for political campaigns at all levels of government, and serving as a government and public affairs consultant to a wide-range of domestic and international corporations, including start-up ventures. She is the creative force behind LoomUS, a civic renewal initiative launching in the summer of 2020. She is a Co-Founder of Women’s Public Leadership Network and Catalyst PAC. She is a fervent advocate for electing and appointing more women to positions at all levels of U.S. government; as such, she is currently an Adviser to “VoteRunLead”and “Running Start” as well a Board of Directors member for “RepresentWomen” and “Republican Women for Progress.” She offers analysis and commentary each week on MSNBC and Al Jazeera Media Network, and she is a senior panelist on PBS’ “To The Contrary” news program — the only all-women news Sunday show in the nation. Rina was elected as a Delegate from Washington, DC to the RNC 2016 Convention; however, due to anti-Trump remarks she made in the national media, her local party and the convention’s credentials committee unjustly denied her access to be seated on the convention floor. Before an independent tribunal within the Republican National Committee ruled in her favor and subsequently reinstated her as a Delegate, Rina’s controversial story was highlighted multiple times in publications ranging from Politico to The Washington Post. She most recently served as Chief Spokesperson and Strategic Adviser for 2016 Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin. Rina was a 2019 Aspen Ideas Festival Scholar and belongs to the American Enterprise Institute’s Leadership Network as well as the Meridian International Center’s Global Leadership Council. She is the proud daughter immigrants from Uganda and India, and is a native of West Virginia. Rina and her husband reside in the Washington, DC area with their daughters.
