Pence taps new workforce innovation adviser

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Gov. Mike Pence is adding a new adviser to lead his workforce innovation efforts.

Pence announced Tuesday that Jaclyn Dowd will serve as his special assistant for workforce innovation and reform. She will be charged with leading the new regional Indiana Works Councils and the Indiana Career Council.

The new panels were created earlier this year as part of a broader effort by Pence and state lawmakers to better match workers with available jobs.

Dowd will move from her job as a deputy commissioner at the Indiana Department of Workforce Development.
