Hello, I’m Gretchen Siegchrist and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Wednesday, April 7th:

Intel is amending its corporate charter to include “corporate responsibility and sustainability performance” in its overall policy responsibility. For two years, investment firm Harrington Investments has introduced a shareholder resolution to amend Intel’s bylaws to create a Board Committee on Sustainability. Intel had initially opposed the resolution, but then began a dialogue that resulted in the agreement to alter the company’s charter. Following the amendment, Harrington has withdrawn its proposed resolution.

The University of Chicago Booth School of Business will host the Chicago Microfinance Conference on May 7th. The conference will address current trends and challenges in the rapidly changing microfinance industry, and will feature practitioners, academics, and industry leaders who will comment on future strategies for successful microfinance initiatives. The event is co-sponsored with the Harris School of Public Policy Studies at the University of Chicago, and the Zell Center for Risk Research at Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
