People of Color and Women Make Up Almost Half of President-Elect Biden’s Transition Team
Diversity is one of the themes that has been central to the political conversation this year and President-elect Joe Biden‘s selection of Senator, now Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris, started the process to involve more women and people of color on his team. According to CNN, Biden’s transition team is made up of mostly women and nearly half of the team are people of color.
President Trump still hasn’t conceded the office to Biden yet and the transition can’t officially start until Trump, not only acknowledges the loss but allows for the transition to start. In the meantime, Biden is gathering his team to start the process of obtaining staff for his administration.
After choosing Ron Klain as his chief of staff, Biden’s hiring has been mostly non-whites and women.
