President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on Sunday announced an all-female White House senior communications team.
“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.
Kate Bedingfield, who served as deputy campaign manager and communications director for the campaign, will be White House communications director.
Pili Tobar, who served as the communications director for coalitions on the campaign, will serve as deputy White House communications director.
Karine Jean-Pierre, a senior adviser on the Biden campaign who later served as chief of staff to Harris, will serve as principal deputy press secretary.
Symone Sanders, a senior Biden adviser on the campaign, will serve as a senior adviser and chief spokesperson for the vice president.
Ashley Etienne, a senior adviser on the Biden campaign, will serve as communications director for the vice president.
Elizabeth Alexander, a Biden campaign senior adviser, will serve as communications director for first lady Jill Biden.
Jen Psaki, former Obama White House communications director will serve as press secretary.
These seven women, several of whom are women of color, will occupy some of the most visible roles in the administration.
Harris, the country’s first female vice president, described the newly-announced team in a statement saying, “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. 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.”
Biden is also expected to nominate Neera Tanden, the chief executive of the left-leaning Center for American Progress, as director of the influential Office of Management and Budget.
Tanden, whose parents immigrated from India, would be the first woman of color to oversee the agency.
