White House press secretary Jen Psaki is holding the Biden administration's first press briefing.
President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have an all-female White House senior communications team.

She has worked on three presidential campaigns, including as traveling press secretary for the 2008 Obama-Biden campaign and traveling press secretary and senior adviser for the 2012 campaign, and as deputy press secretary for John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign.
Kate Bedingfield, who served as deputy campaign manager and communications director for the campaign, will be White House communications director.
