Last week, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump released the names of the people on his economic advising team. Among them are billionaires, hedge funders, real estate tycoons, and an oil bigwig. For good measure, there are two economists. All 14 advisers are white men. And six are named Steve.

On Thursday, following a barrage of criticism fired at the Trump campaign for the team’s lack of demographic and professional diversity, Trump’s campaign released a list of additional economic advisers. This time, the nine members included eight women and no Steves (but one Anthony), bringing the total roster of Trump’s official economic advisers to 23.

This list is also different from the first iteration of Trump’s advising team in that there are more members who have government or public-sector experience on their resumes. For example, Darlene Jordan worked as the national finance co-chair for Mitt Romney for President in 2008 and 2012 and is now the executive director of the nonprofit Gerald R. Jordan Foundation; Judy Shelton, a former economic adviser for the National Commission on Economic Growth and Tax Reform, worked as a White House and Pentagon consultant on economic issues, according to the release.

Betsy McCaughey, former lieutenant governor of New York state, was also added to the list—alongside ex-husband and “king of bankruptcy” Wilbur Ross.

Here’s the list of freshly minted advisers:

  • Diane Hendricks, founder ABC Supply Co., Inc.

  • Darlene Jordan, executive director Gerald R. Jordan Foundation

  • Brooke Rollins, president and CEO Texas Public Policy Foundation

  • Anthony Scaramucci, co-manager partner and founder SkyBridge Capital

  • Carla Sands, chairman Vintage Capital Group

  • Judy Shelton, senior fellow and co-director Atlas Sound Money Project

  • Liz Uihlein, co-founder and president Uline, Inc.

  • Kathleen Hartnett White, distinguished senior fellow and director Armstrong Center for Energy and the Environment at the Texas Public Policy Foundation
