Former Federal Reserve chair Janet L. Yellen was sworn in as the 78th Secretary of the Treasury on January 26, 2021. This was a moment for historical reflection, as Yellen is the first woman confirmed to this vital cabinet position.1


At her confirmation hearing before the Senate, Yellen made a point that the nation needed to “act big” to stimulate and revitalize the economy, which is still reeling from the socioeconomic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. This has led to many conversations about the professionals and voices the White House may call upon to help guide the economy into the post-COVID era.1,2

Every February, Americans celebrate Black History Month. This year, we invite you to join us in remembering the accomplishments of black citizens, past and present, which are an integral part of American history.
