Ivanka Trump and the newly confirmed head of the Small Business Administration met with about a dozen business owners in Baltimore on Wednesday to discuss urban entrepreneurship.

A White House spokeswoman did not respond to a request for comment, but Marc Morial, president and CEO of the National Urban league, tweeted out photos of Trump and others at the meeting.

Ivanka Trump, who does not have an official role at the White House but who often appears with her father, President Donald Trump, has been a proponent of expanding the number of women in business. The meeting was also attended by Dina Powell, an assistant to the president on economic issues.
