ALSO IN THE HEADLINES
- Staff shakeup. After nine months without conducting a single press briefing, Stephanie Grisham is out as White House press secretary. Grisham will return to the East Wing, replacing Lindsay Reynolds as First Lady Melania Trump's chief of staff. The new White House press secretary is Kayleigh McEnany, previously the Trump 2020 campaign's spokeswoman. New York Times
- Billions and billions. The annual Forbes list of billionaires is out, and these are the richest women in the world: Alice Walton, Françoise Bettencourt Meyers, Julia Koch, and MacKenzie Bezos. Of 2,095 billionaires worldwide, 234 are women. Forbes
- Endorsement report. Legendary civil rights activist Rep. John Lewis endorsed Joe Biden for president yesterday—and told reporters he strongly supports picking a woman for the ticket's VP slot. "It would be good to have a woman that looks like the rest of America," Lewis said. The Root
- Foe to frenemy. Margrethe Vestager was once seen as Big Tech's greatest foe. Now the European Union tech czar's efforts to use government regulation to restore public trust in technology may save tech from itself. Even Google and Facebook agree. Bloomberg
MOVERS AND SHAKERS: Macy's EVP and CFO Paula Price will leave the retailer. Twilio hired Christy Lake of Box as chief people officer.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
- Post-crisis plan. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey will donate $1 billion in Square equity, or about 28% of his wealth to coronavirus relief.

"I believe they represent the best long-term solutions to the existential problems facing the world." Fortune

- Robotics champions. Five Afghan teen girls, part of the robotics team Afghan Dreamers, designed a ventilator that runs using the motor of a Toyota Corolla. The students are eligible for the Afghan Girls Robotics Team, the same group whose members were denied entry to the U.S. for a robotics competition in 2017. The National
- Off the court. Sen. Kelly Loeffler's recent troubles in Congress (she is among the lawmakers to have made stock trades drawing suspicion for coming after Congressional briefings on coronavirus; she denies any wrongdoing) are impacting another area of her professional life: the WNBA team she owns, the Atlanta Dream. The WNBA is known as a progressive league, and players are struggling to balance Loeffler's support for them with some of her other views. Guardian
