Vice President Kamala Harris administered a ceremonial oath of office to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen at the White House.
Both made history for being the first women to hold their current roles.
The ceremony took place on the East side of the White House, facing the Treasury Department.
“Congratulations, Madam Secretary,” Harris said, laughing and clapping as she stood over six feet away from Yellen and her husband George Akerlof and son Robert Akerlof.
“Thank you for all you do… and thank you to your family,” Harris said as pool was escorted out.
Yellen is the first woman to lead the Treasury Department, and the first person to serve as treasury secretary, chair of the Council of Economic Advisors, and chair of the Federal Reserve, according to the office of the vice president.
