Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Tuesday, September 21st:

The Shanghai World Expo will present a case study on how the gem and jewelry industry has adapted to CSR and sustainability issues in a workshop being held today at that event. Sponsored by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research, in cooperation with the World Jewelry Foundation, the study will describe the progress of the jewelry sector since 2000. Topics will include the conflict diamond crisis, the formation of the Kimberley Process Certification program, and the creation of the World Jewelry Confederation Education Foundation. 

Bank PHB, one of the leading financial institutions in The Gambia, has donated 200,000 dalasi, over $7,000 dollars, to the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education, as part of its CSR program. The gift creates the Educational Scholarship of Bank PHB, which will support students at the University of Gambia by paying their tuition fees. The bank has focused its CSR efforts on advancing the education of youth in that country.
