About Tec for Good and Tech for All
“So, that’s also interesting, like you said, Tech for Good, that’s like a trendy hashtag. A lot of people are kind of overusing it. And some companies can, like, use it as a CSR program to make themselves look good. But one charming thing about Huawei is that it’s not a CSR program, it’s actually embedded in their contract. Because, I think, technology is sexy when it can solve problems that others cannot solve. Say, you know, we have the Tech for All program. We subsequently it’s not like we donate money, but we actually use Huawei AI to develop a type of technology that can help deaf children to read. So it’s not like CSR programs in terms of, first of all, a short period of time, and us donating money, that’s not solving the root problem. It’s, like I said, it’s sexy when you can actually pinpoint a problem to be solved in a stage that you’re actually designing technology, right?”
About her role as Director of global social media at Huawei
“For me, I think, it’s a really valuable job, not just for a company’s, so called, business profit. I see it as truly, it is a socially valuable job, because we are making an impact together to amplify a key message that’s worth getting heard by society in general. You know, we have that Trust in Tech campaign going forward on an annual basis. So it’s not about just branding for Huawei, it’s more to really build trust around technology in general, for the whole industry. We all know, like during the pandemic, a lot of mistrust, a lot of generalisations, that’s not hurting one single company, that’s something critical for the whole industry. So I see this as actually very socially valuable because we are working together to amplify the message that’s actually important for people in general.”
