She said that her father's order would allow for the 'talents and competencies of all Americans' to be recognized and allow for federal agencies to look past 'outdated degree requirements' in hiring.
Trump's eldest daughter revealed that the order outlined a new direction for the nation's largest employer ahead of a meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board.
Ivanka, one of the president's advisers, is co-chair of the board, which advises the administration on worker policy and has worked on improving job training to meet employers' changing needs.
'You are once again leading by example today with the EO signing,' Ivanka said to her father during the meeting.
'As the nation's largest employer, we are always seeking to retain the best and the brightest to serve the American people.
'Today we're taking that next step, as you mentioned, and signing an executive order that directs federal agencies to hire based on skills and knowledge not just outdated degree requirements,' Ivanka continued.
'This will allow us to better recognize the talents and competencies of all Americans we hire.'
