Guest Blog: Debra Haaland Makes Women’s History Now

Race & Ethnicity Mar 26, 2021

In honor of Women’s History Month, The Diversity Movement is celebrating the vast accomplishments of influential women throughout the years and a few of the amazing women who are making history right now. One of those honorees is the country’s new Secretary of the Interior, Debra Haaland.

Last week, Debra Haaland — a Native American woman with a powerful history of professional advocacy and allyship — was officially sworn in as Secretary of the Interior, thereby becoming the first Native American woman to lead the Cabinet agency. Haaland’s confirmation is a powerful and historic moment as the Interior Department is responsible for the relations between the U.S. Government and Native American tribes.
