President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team has touted diversity as a priority in the incoming administration. While Biden’s early picks for administration jobs have included women and people of color, the diversity of his selections doesn’t appear to go far past that.

Biden so far seems focused on bringing back veteran Democratic administration advisers and officials, and many of these brandish elite credentials from the world’s most selective and expensive universities. Many of Biden’s picks have very similar professional backgrounds, often starting at prestigious universities and law schools and moving into positions at think tanks, management consulting firms and Democratic administrations and campaigns.
