CSR Club Students Speak at U.N. Conference
May 2, 2016
Four students from LIM’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Club attended “Education for Global Citizenship: Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals Together - Youth as Agents of Change” conference at the United Nations on April 28. This event was organized by the U.N. Department of Public Information (DPI) in collaboration with the Youth Subcommittee to the 66th DPI/Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) Conference.
Thomas Goonan, Indira Bott, Caitlin Mohen and Madison Ross joined students from colleges and universities throughout New York, including New York University, Teachers College of Columbia University, and Fordham University. Thomas and Madison spoke to attendees about some of the LIM College CSR Club’s initiatives.
LIM’s CSR Club began in the fall of 2015. Founded on the principles of concepts learned in Professor Gayathri Banavara’s course in CSR, the club’s purpose is to raise awareness among the LIM community about the importance and value of CSR. The club’s first event, an Earth Day Fair, was held on April 22 and featured guest speakers and ethical vendors, including the U.N. DPI/NGO.
