Notes:
Bernie 2020 is shaping up to be a significantly different campaign than Bernie 2016.  There were allegations of sexual harassment and gender discrimination on Sanders' 2016 campaign (+), and in a Feb. 22 interview with MSNBC's Chris Hayes, Sanders directly stated that the '16 campaign had been "too white, too male-oriented" (>).  Bernie 2020 has gone all in to ensure a diversity and a positive work environment, ranging from the selection of campaign manager to the national co-chairs to the Mar. 15 announcement that the campaign has unionized.  Writing at Refinery29, Natalie Gontcharova states, "The campaign says that now, every single one of its teams — management, political, policy, organizing, communications, advance, digital, and fundraising — has women, and predominantly women of color, in leadership positions.  Overall, the national leadership team is around 70% women."

Nina Golgowski.  "Bernie Sanders Vows More Diverse Campaign, Protocols To Thwart Sexual Harassment."  HuffPost, Mar. 4, 2010.
