To provide affordable and convenient childcare, UMC recently established a non-profit kindergarten near its Tainan campus in partnership with the Southern Taiwan Science Park.

In 2022, UMC strengthened its commitment to an inclusive workplace with the announcement of its Diversity and Inclusion Statement, which guides that equal opportunities shall be offered without bias based on factors such as race, color, gender, or age.

Lastly, UMC aims to enhance employees’ sense of fulfillment by building a volunteering culture through events organized by the company and the UMC Science and Culture Foundation.
