President Donald Trump will be advised on women in the workforce — by two male executives.
The Trump administration has selected two male CEOs to advise Trump on women in the workforce as part of a meeting with business leaders Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Doug McMillon, chief executive of Wal-Mart, and Mark Weinberger, chief executive of EY, will advise Trump on the issues, though it’s not clear what exactly they’ll be discussing. Additional topics include “regulation” and “infrastructure,” according to the Journal.
The meeting is part of the “President’s Strategic and Policy Forum” led by Stephen Schwarzman, chief executive of the private equity group Blackstone.
Travis Kalanick, CEO and Co-founder of Uber, was also part of this group but announced Thursday that he would no longer participate after backlash against the ride-sharing company.
