Biden, Trump’s campaign released staff diversity data



Biden, Trump's campaign released staff diversity data

Thirty-five percent of Joe Biden’s full-time staff are people of color, a Biden campaign aide told CNN, while 36% of senior staff were people of color. Both senior staff and full-time staff are majority women, with 53% of full-time staff and 58% of senior staff identified as women. Five percent of staff chose not to specify, the aide told CNN.

The newly revealed data do not show full staff damage based on race and ethnicity.

President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign released a number of them Saturday night.

Of the full-time campaign staff, 52% were women, while senior staff consisted of 56% women and 25% people of color, a spokesman told CNN Donald Judd. Damage to people of color among full-time staff is not available, the spokesman said.

Alida Garcia, one of the founders of Inclusv, a diversity in political groups, told CNN before the Trump campaign released figures that the company was “excited” to see the Biden campaign “reach the first major step towards transparency around their team structure,” but showed that there is “clearly room for growth.”

“We have optimism that they will be able to maybe even beat the numbers where Hillary Clinton ended up in her campaign,” Garcia said.

Per assistant, senior staff including department heads, senior advisers, deputy campaign managers, and senior consultants who spend most of their time on campaigns, and so on. The helper noted that the campaign is still continuing the recruitment process and hopes to continue to add key leaders throughout the campaign.

The release of data came after Biden emphasized the diversity of his top staff during the town hall focusing on issues affecting Asian American and Pacific Islanders and amid growing national conversation about racial justice and inclusion.

Biden confirmed to the questioners that it was and directed his staff to release diversity data after the event.

“We will release diversity data today when we come out of this call. We will contact you, and the fact is we have a very diverse staff. And we have a diverse staff that is on the entire board, above senior levels and positions,” said Biden.

Garcia told CNN that Inclusv had been working with the Biden campaign for months to build a diverse team and previewed that they would work together in the coming weeks to hold seminars and events for people of color who were interested in being involved in the campaign.

Pointing to the lack of specificity in the data released, Garcia said, “Giving each community a better understanding of their position in the organization is very important for organizations to conduct self-reflection to ensure that they are building a team in stating that reflecting voters from the state but for outside entities to judge how many seats at the table they have. “

“At the very least, we believe that a democratic campaign must reflect voters who determine the part of their votes for the path to victory,” Garcia said.

Biden often touted the diversity of his team on the campaign track, telling voters who questioned how he would become an inclusive president, “look at my staff.” He also has long promised that he will have a diverse government that is “like America,” although his campaign will not currently provide mixed data to BuzzFeed News when asked.

Responding to specific questions Biden was asked on Saturday about representatives of Asia America and the Pacific Islands during the town hall, the campaign noted that senior AAPI leaders in the campaign included the chief of campaign finance, chief of operations, director of national voter protection, chief of digital staff, director of digital partnerships and director a substitute.

This story has been updated to include diversity figures from the Trump campaign.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
