The president-elect of the United States, Joe Biden, announced this Sunday that his new communication team, for the first time in history, will be made up entirely of a group of seven "diverse" and "experienced" women, with whom he hopes, he said, "to build an administration that resembles" the country.
"I am proud to announce today the White House's first senior communications team made up entirely of women. These skilled and experienced communicators bring diverse perspectives and a shared commitment to better rebuild this country," said Biden.
The new White House Communication Director will be Kate Bedingfield, who previously worked under Biden as his Communication Director during the Obama Administration, where she held other important positions, such as Deputy Director of Communication, or Deputy Director of Media. . Among those elected, the presence of Jen Psaki stands out, who has been present in up to three Democratic presidential campaigns.
In addition, Biden is expected to announce this Monday the top positions of his economic team, among which Neera Tanden, who was an advisor to former President Barack Obama, as director of the White House budget office, and economist Cecilia Rouse as chair of the Council of Economic Advisers on Monday, a person familiar with the process told Reuters.
Biden is also expected to choose Wally Adeyemo, the Obama Administration's international economic adviser, to be Janet Yellen's top adviser at the Treasury Department. Economists Jared Bernstein and Heather Boushey will likely be appointed to the Council of Economic Advisers, the same source said.
