Special Projects Manager


Erin Klett is special projects manager for Verité, where she currently focuses on the implementation of research and advocacy programs to stem the abuse of migrant workers in global supply chains.

Erin managed research projects and publications across the globe, including pioneering research on labor protections for foreign contract workers in Asia and the Middle East.

Prior to joining Verité, Erin's experience ranged from policy research at the ILO's Washington Office, to managing executive programs for Russian legislators and military officers at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, to conducting social research for the Empowering Neighborhood People project among urban poor in Washington, D.C.

Erin has lived and worked in Russia and speaks the language. She served as an international elections supervisor for the OSCE in Bosnia Herzegovina in 1998.
