This past Monday(11/30/20) the President-Elect and his transition team announced more economic posts. There was much speculation on who he would appoint.
When the announcement was made those watching in anticipation found out that the President-Elect appointed Janet Yellen for the position of Treasury secretary. This is the top position in the Treasury Department. If Yellen is approved by the Senate, she will be the first woman to hold the post.
Biden also announced that Neera Tanden will potentially act as the head of Office Management and Budget. If Tanden is confirmed for the position she will be the first woman of color to hold the office.
These nominations are a sign that the President-Elect has made good on his promise to put together a diverse cabinet.
