4th American Workforce Policy Advisory Board Meeting

Last week, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross joined Advisor to the President IvankaTrump in hosting the 4th meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board at the Indiana Women's Prison to highlight a workforce development program called “The Last Mile,” which teaches inmates coding skills.

“This is a very important initiative, not only from a workforce development point of view but from the humanitarian point of view,” Ross said. “There are now 2.3 million inmates in prison, some of whom will be out very shortly. It's very important that they have a clear and good career path so that you don't have a lot of recidivism.”.
