Lessons in GSG HERstory: Liana Klippel Kane

Professional Life and Accomplishments

In 100 words or less, tell us about your career path. 

Straight and narrow: I started as a temp at Zurich Insurance Company in 2001 and left in 2010 to start working at GSG! When I came to GSG there were 33 employees, which was a bit of shift from Zurich’s 50k worldwide. And of course, the industry and people I supported were so different, but I was ready for the change. Its been a very rewarding few years – we do great work here.

Who are your female mentors, role models, favorite trail blazers, or heroes?

Anna Wintour is Everything. British, fierce, loyal, and doesn’t take sh*t from people.

I mean how can I not mention my own mother? Di-zee has always been the hardest worker I know, and she did it with 4 kids. How do working mothers do it?? It blows my mind. Shout out to all the GSG working moms!

Anything to support animals and stopping animal cruelty.

Who is a woman everyone should know about?
