CNN has reported these statistics.

According to CNN, women and people of colour make up 52% of Joe Biden, president-elect of the USA’s transition team. A diverse transition staff might signal that Biden, along with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, is looking to prioritize diversity within his incoming administration. Under the Trump administration, the White House consisted of 71% white males.  Trump had the highest percentage of white men employed in his cabinet since the Reagan administration.
