Zachey Kliger is an MPA candidate at Columbia’s School of International Affairs studying social policy and technology. Before starting at SIPA, Zachey worked at two brand consulting firms, conducting original research on the drivers of corporate reputation, and partnering with small businesses to execute digital marketing strategies. In 2019, the widening scope of our global political crises—from stark economic inequality to the rise of far-right populism— inspired Zachey to leave his job in the private sector to join Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign.
