First 100: Biden’s Cabinet
February 27, 2021
As President Biden continues to adjust to the presidency, he must await the confirmation of his Cabinet – a body consisting of advisers to the president, all of who head their respective departments at the nomination of the president. Biden’s Cabinet, if his initial nominations are to all be confirmed, would be the most diverse Cabinet of any administration – a Cabinet of many firsts.
Click the illustrations to learn more about Biden’s Cabinet nominations. Larger bubbles represent core Cabinet positions; smaller bubbles represent Cabinet-level positions. Those in grey bubbles have yet to be confirmed; those in green bubbles have already been confirmed or selected (not every Cabinet member has to be confirmed); and those in red have been rejected by the Senate.
