Dell has donated $1 million to Catalyst, a nonprofit membership organization that expands opportunities for women and business. The funds will help create the Catalyst Center for Career Pathway Research, part of Catalyst’s “Changing Workplaces, Changing Lives” campaign, which boosts the organization’s efforts for workplace inclusion.

Kenneth Cole and the Human Rights Campaign are collaborating.  As part of the company’s AWEARNESS campaign, a limited edition tee shirt with “Vote for Equality” signage that encourages Americans to support LGBT equality at the polls this election cycle will appear in 97 Kenneth Cole retail and outlet stores during June. In addition, stores will host events benefiting HRC on June 23rd.

NativeEnergy, a marketer of carbon offsets, was the carbon sponsor for the Sustainable Brands Conference.  As a sponsor, NativeEnergy donates offsets that balance the CO2 emissions from event activities, attendee travel, and hotel accommodations.
