Washington, D.C., November 25, 2020: In a New York Times’ article, Helene Cooper features Inclusive America’s work as President-Elect Joe Biden works to “create the most diverse cabinet in history.”
“In a letter to Mr. Biden sent earlier this month, an advocacy group, Inclusive America, stressed the importance of putting together an administration that reflects “the evolving demographics of our nation.” “
“The group wants Mr. Biden to sign an executive order committing to specific goals to promote diversity and inclusion in the federal work force and presidential appointments process.
As Mr. Biden rolls out his top cabinet officials in the next few weeks, he is expected to break the norm in at least one high-profile position. While every past defense secretary has been white and male, the top two candidates in the running for the position are Michele Flournoy, a former top policy official at the Pentagon in the Obama administration, and Jeh Johnson, who was Mr. Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary. Mr. Johnson is Black.”
Cooper also includes Inclusive America’s data analysis of Cabinet Diversity over the last 4 administrations.
