President-elect to Have All Female-Led Communications Team
Something more remarkable is the inclusion of three Black women: Symone Sanders, Karine Jean-Pierre, and Ashley Etienne. Biden goes on to highlight the importance of their role.
“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,” Biden said in a statement.
The First Woman VP Comments
Vice President-elect Harris, the first woman in American history to hold the position, made a statement. She commended the women on their “commitment to building a White House that reflects the very best of our nation.”
America is at a turning point – a potentially good one. There is hope for more historical barriers to be broken, especially during this next presidential term.
“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,” said Harris in a statement.
Proper Leadership is in Place Now
Eyes are on Biden to make drastic changes. Harris, too understands that a new leadership model was necessary to make any meaningful change.
“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,” Harris continued.
Look like more women are working for the White House.
