INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Eyewitness News has learned Ivanka Trump will be visiting Indianapolis on White House business.

Trump and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross will be convening the fourth American Workforce Policy Advisory Board on Thursday.

She will tour the Indiana Women’s Prison where they will learn about The Last Mile, a business skills-training and coding program. The idea of the program is to equip incarcerated women with relevant job skills and to propel them into in-demand and growing technology careers when they return to their communities.

"Our mission is straightforward: To ensure inclusive growth and opportunity in our booming economy by creating pathways for all Americans to acquire the skills needed to secure and retain good paying jobs," said Trump, who is an adviser to the President.

The meeting will run from 9:30 a.m. to around noon.
