See the latest at “Biden Administration: Here’s Who Has Been Named So Far, at NPR.

Here’s the breakdown by demographics, as analyzed in a 12/19 email by Domenico Montanaro, NPR’s senior political editor/correspondent:

• 19 total selected so far out of the 25 Cabinet or Cabinet-level positions for his administration.
• 11 people of color, which is more than half so far.
• 10 of Biden’s picks are women, more than half of those picked so far. Trump’s Cabinet is 83% male, including 78% white male; Biden’s is 47% male at this point.
• 6 Black Americans are part of Biden’s group, almost a third — four of whom are Black women. For comparison, just one Black man serves in Trump’s Cabinet (Ben Carson at Housing and Urban Development).
• 3 Asian American picks. Trump has one Asian American Cabinet secretary (Elaine Chao at Transportation).
• 2 Latinos. In Trump’s Cabinet, Jovita Carranza of the Small Business Administration is the only Latino.
• 1 Native American, who would be the first ever in a president’s Cabinet.
• 1 openly gay man, who would be the first ever confirmed to a president’s Cabinet.
Biden still has six big jobs left to fill: attorney general, commerce, labor and education secretaries, director of the CIA, and Small Business Administration administrator.

“We must march to demand the unqualified right to register and vote—we must march to demand the opportunity for decent jobs—we must march for the right to improve our wages and living standards.” — Bayard Rustin, born in West Chester, March 17, 1912
