CONTENT: Press Release

Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Thursday, June 3rd:

The Emerald Publishing Group has joined with the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative to introduce the inaugural Social Impact Award. The new award recognizes outstanding research which makes a tangible difference for the social good, in line with Emerald’s publishing philosophy of “research you can use.” The winning paper, chosen from articles published in an Emerald journal in 2009, is “What Matters to Managers: The Whats, Whys and Hows of Corporate Social Responsibility in a Multinational Corporation.” 

The Grameen Foundation’s open source technology solution, Mifos, has earned high marks in its first rating on the Microfinance Software Listing and Review scorecard, published by the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor. CGAP, a resource for information on microfinance software products, gave Mifos maximum points—four out of four stars—for technical capabilities and for its suite of professional services. Mifos also received high marks for being easy to use. It is currently being used by microfinance institutions serving more than 600,000 clients.
