In a historic move, US President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris have named seven women to run the White House communications situs slot online team.
“Communicating directly and truthfully to the American people is one of the most important duties of a President, and this team will be entrusted with the tremendous responsibility of connecting the American people to the White House. I am proud to announce today the first senior White House communications team comprised entirely of women. These qualified, experienced communicators bring diverse perspectives to their work and a shared commitment to building this country back better,” Biden said in a statement.
Harris said the significance of an all-women team was important. The seven women, including two openly gay people, also have experience of working in government and all have ties to Biden.
“Our country is facing unprecedented challenges – from the coronavirus pandemic to the economic crisis, to the climate crisis, and a long-overdue reckoning over racial injustice,” she said. “To overcome these challenges, we need to communicate clearly, honestly, and transparently with the American people, and this experienced, talented, and barrier-shattering team will help us do that. These communications professionals express our commitment to building a White House that reflects the very best of our nation.”
Jen Psaki worked as President Barack Obama’s White House Communications Director and will be Biden’s White House Press Secretary. Kate Bedingfield served as Biden’s 2020 campaign Communications Director and will have the same role in the White House. Symone Sanders, a Senior Advisor on Biden’s presidential campaign, will be Senior Advisor and Chief Spokesperson for Harris.
