Nevada Supreme Deputy


Mrs. Heidi Haartz

Welcome to the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls and Nevada Grand Assembly!

For nearly a century our Order has promoted a life of service through sisterhood. As Rainbow has spread across our country and around our world, each jurisdiction has added to the foundation of our order with its own traditions. And, over time, those traditions have continued to evolve, ensuring Rainbow continues to be a progressive youth movement.

During my years as a Rainbow girl and adult, it has been amazing to watch our Order and our Nevada jurisdiction evolve based on the interests of our members. When I was a girl, our members advocated that all girls should be allowed to join our Order, regardless of their nationality or the color of their skin. Several years ago, our Order adopted a policy allowing transgender girls to join our Order. Most recently, our Order actively established a policy regarding Diversity, Equity, and Inclusiveness, solidifying our committing to welcome and support all girls through our Order.

In Nevada, our girls have worked together to ensure that all Rainbow Girls in the state have the same, high quality Rainbow experience. They have also defined and redefined the responsibilities of our leadership at our local levels and the state level, based on the interest of our members and the needs of our assemblies. Our girls drive us to remain innovative and committed to the mission of our Founder – to remain a progressive youth movement.

This innovation has grown exponentially during the COVID-19 pandemic, as our girls challenged us to find ways to continue Rainbow and Rainbow events – from the safety of our own homes. Our girls have helped our adults become even more technologically savvy, and our leadership has been receptive to allowing girls to participate in virtual events. These virtual event have brought the universality of Rainbow to life for our girls, who can now attend meetings and events across the state, in other states, and in other countries.

I am honored and humbled to have been given the opportunity to serve Nevada Rainbow as its Supreme Deputy. I strive to always do what is in the best interest of our girls, so they will gladly share their love of Rainbow with their friends and family and others. I look forward to supporting our girls as they continue to keep Rainbow relevant as we enter another century of service and sisterhood.
