▌Core principles of social welfare activities - Deep commitment to the future of our country by harnessing professional expertise

As an innovation-oriented enterprise, MediaTek embarks on the cultivation of technology talent with a focus to train the next generation of professionals with competence in the field of technology application. Implementation paths are divided into "knowledge dissemination" and "knowledge application" based on strategic considerations. Through four key action pillars -"social innovation", "solid technological foundation", "talent cultivation" and "social welfare and engagement", MediaTek continuously cultivates and contributes to Taiwan. It also provides platforms for showcasing relevant achievement and making a meaningful impact.

▌Digital Social Innovation

Harnessing of digital technologies for the solution of social issues is not the sole preserve of private enterprises. MediaTek firmly believes that every citizen has the potential to create unlimited possibilities by
utilizing digital technologies. In 2018, MediaTek launched the digital social innovation competition "Genius for Home" to encourage all members of society to offer solutions for issues affecting their hometowns. In addition, MediaTek provided counseling and grants to support the finalist teams to implement their proposals for two years after the competition.

● Genius for Home

The MediaTek Digital Social Innovation Competition titled "Genius for Home" was launched based on the fundamental belief that "we should all make contributions to improve our hometowns". It calls on all citizens to provide solutions for social issues facing their hometowns through innovative application of digital technologies. Since its inception in 2018, a total of 1,853 proposals for hometown improvement were submitted in five sessions.

▌Solid Technological Foundation and Talent Cultivation

STEM talent is trained in a strategic manner, dissemination of knowledge is accelerated through a dual-track approach ("technology courses" and "science projects"), and application of knowledge is promoted through "application competitions".

Technology Courses

Pushing reforms inside the educational system and flipping of technology classrooms by joining hands with first-line instructors.

We understand that it takes time to make long-term influence in the education system, and that changes in the education field require preparation and time; therefore, the Course Maker Program, which started in 2021, expanded its support to 1+1 years from 2022. Taking a two-year cycle, the program nurtures elementary and junior high school teachers who have the ability to develop technology courses and helps them offer courses on the application of technology, such as electromechanical control programs, Internet of Things, and AI.

▌Social Welfare and Engagement

MediaTek demonstrates social solidarity through proactive social engagement and social welfare actions. MediaTek encourages its employees to engage in social interactions in search for focal points for the practice of compassion and contributions to society. The Volunteer Club was officially established in 2012 to expand the social influence of MediaTek through organized and systematic management modes. These efforts have been facilitated by the official adoption of the volunteer leave policy in 2015 which entitles every employee to eight hours of volunteer leave per year. MediaTekers are actively encouraged to participate in social welfare activities to fulfill their civic responsibility. In 2022, MediaTek's volunteer club consisted of 93 volunteers in three groups: the Reading and Writing Group, the Material Collection Group, and the Beach Cleanup Group.
