Trump's economic advisers are no longer all named Steve

The Steve:not Steve ratio on Trump's economic team just got a little smaller. 

Almost a week after announcing a team of all-male, all-white economic advisers, nearly half of whom were named some variation on Steve, Steven or Stephen, Trump has added nine new members to his staff. 

Of the nine new advisers, eight are women. All still seem to be white. 

Joining the Trump team is building products distributor Diane Hendricks, nonprofit executive Darlene Jordan, former New York lieutenant governor Betsy McCaughey, Brooke Rollins and Kathleen Hartnett White from the Texas Public Policy Foundation, investor Carla Sands, Atlas Network senior fellow Judy Shelton, and Liz Uihlein of Uline Inc. 

The token man this time around is Anthony Scaramucci of the investment firm SkyBridge Capital. 

Besides raising the count of women involved in Trump's economic policy from zero to eight, the additions don't change too much for the economic team. 

As long as the Steves don't feel outnumbered.
