During his presidential campaign, then-candidate Joe Biden vowed his cabinet would be “the most diverse in history.”
It seems as President he is living up to that promise. There are more women and people of color in President Biden’s proposed cabinet than in the last four administrations.
“Building a diverse team will lead to better outcomes and more effective solutions to address the urgent crises facing our nation,” he said in a speech in December when announcing some of his cabinet nominees.
His cabinet has record-breaking nominations and fulfills Mr. Biden’s campaign promise to select a team that “looks like America” The diversity isn’t exclusive to the cabinet nominees. It extends throughout positions in the Biden-Harris Administration.
This month we’ll introduce you to some of the Black women that hold these positions.
