Social Inclusion Policy and Achievement

Social Inclusion Policy

A multicultural, caring, creative, and sustainable society is set as LITE-ON’s vision of social inclusion.

LITE-ON has long committed to social inclusion with the goal of "giving back what is taken from society," especially given escalating problems in society. These problems include new immigrant involving into the society, upbringing of younger generation, shortage of life-long educational resources, lack of creative talent, and increasingly serious environmental and ecological issues. LITE-ON's efforts have focused on building a society full of multi-culture, education, creativity, and environmental sustainability. In order to achieve this social vision, the company has identified four critical missions: advancing cultural diversity in quality of humanism, promoting care of youth and children education and life-long learning, nurturing creative and professional talent, and developing sustainable product and environmentally friendly education. Accomplishment of the above missions depends on how we execute our concrete strategy. Some of the projects undertaken have included: a community assistance program, community college, LITE-ON Award, educational support, a corporate volunteer system, and sustainable product designs. The above strategies were executed mainly through the following actions:

  • Volunteer training (for multi-culture and community volunteer programs)

  • Care services for youth and children

  • English and after-school teaching at remote elementary schools; after-school counseling for disadvantaged students; counseling for the physically/mentally disabled; environmental protection activities

  • Adult education (including disabled and disadvantaged people); provision of life-long learning platform and green courses

  • Encouraging creative technical designers and integrating into technology incubation programs

  • Industry-academia collaboration—combining theory and practice

  • Development of clean, energy-saving, and smart healthcare equipment

  • Building the LITE-ON Volunteer System in four areas: community service, talent development, environmental sustainability, and charity & sponsorship

  • Development of recycling and reuse of marine waste, initiatives for sustainable use of marine resources, marine environmental education and ecosystem conservation activities

  • Helping minority groups and social welfare organizations through innovative social design and green energy charity projects
