INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Ivanka Trump visited Indianapolis Thursday to take part in a panel at Salesforce Tower with the company’s founder, chairman and co-CEO, Marc Benioff.
Trump, who is a senior advisor to the president, promoted a White House workforce initiative that the San Francisco-based tech company signed on to with a commitment to training and re-skilling initiatives, according to our news gathering partners at the IndyStar.
More than 200 companies have signed the “Pledge to America’s Workers” with the aim of creating more than six million jobs over the next five years. President Trump signed an executive order last summer to expand programs that educate, train and re-skill American workers from high-school age to near-retirement.
“Part of what I’ve been tasked to do by the president is help ensure that in this booming economy everyone has equal access to opportunity and that we celebrate all good, solid pathways that enable people to realize their full potential,” Trump said.
“We don’t even know what it will look like. We don’t even know the jobs all the brilliant innovators in here will create through the technologies and through startups that you either enable or launch yourselves,” Trump said of the initiative.
Other companies that signed the pledge include Apple, Walmart, FedEx and Amazon.
