Joe Biden announces all female media team at his White House
President-elect Biden has chosen top campaign aides to fill senior positions in his White House press team. For the first time in US history, the entire senior communications staff will be women.
US President-elect Joe Biden on Sunday named a historic all-female senior White House press staff, tapping top campaign aides and veterans of the Obama administration to lead the incoming administration’s communications team.
“I am proud to announce today the first senior White House communications team comprised entirely of women,” Biden said in a statement. “These qualified, experienced communicators bring diverse perspectives to their work and a shared commitment to building this country back better.”
Biden’s transition team said the “diverse, experienced and talented women” picked for the role show the incoming president’s “commitment to building an administration that looks like America and is ready to deliver results for working families on day one.”
‘Most diverse team in history’
For the first time, the top communications roles at the White House will be entirely female. Four of the seven appointees are women of color.
Jennifer Psaki (pictured above), who was former President Barack Obama’s White House communications director, has been appointed as the Biden administration’s press secretary.
“This is a team of some of the most talented, battle-tested communicators out there … who are also all women, most diverse team in history and also 6 Moms of young kids,” Psaki, a longtime Democratic spokesperson, said on Twitter.
Kate Bedingfield, the Biden-Harris campaign’s spokesperson, will serve as the White House communications director. She also served as the communication director for Biden when he was the vice-president. To read more go to the link below:
