Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Monday, May 24th:

The Alcatel-Lucent Foundation has launched “Empower,” a CSR initiative for disadvantaged communities in India. The Empower program will develop educational opportunities and life skills training for underserved youth, especially for girls and young women. Both direct financial assistance—a grant of $205,000 to five Indian NGOs—and engagement by Alcatel-Lucent employee volunteers are included in the program’s guidelines. 

George Washington University has announced its new Institute for Sustainability Research, Education, and Policy. The Institute will serve as a center for scholarship and innovation for both the local George Washington University and the global sustainability communities. Based in DC, the University plans to leverage its central location to position the new Institute as a resource for actionable change by business leaders, government, and NGOs.
