Deputy Secretary of Commerce Karen Dunn Kelley will lead the delegation, the White House said in a statement. She will be joined by six other women at the match.
Jamie D. McCourt, the U.S. ambassador to Monaco, Josephine K. Olsen, the director of the Peace Corps, Seema Verma, the administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Marie Royce, the assistant secretary of state for educational and current affairs, Shauna Rohbock, a member of the U.S. Army National Guard who serves on the President’s Council on Sports Fitness and Nutrition and Kelly Loeffler, the CEO of Bakkt and the co-owner of the WNBA’s Atlanta Dream, will be in the delegation.
