SCG shares scholars’ dream of a better future

A strong believer of the famous adage “The youth is the hope of the nation,” SCG continues to invest in Filipino students through its Sharing the Dream program. Knowing that the children of today will grow up to become the leaders of tomorrow, SCG through its scholarship program hopes to help the youth obtain a well-rounded education that will shape them into the competent and responsible professionals and citizens the country needs.

Since its launch in the Philippines in 2008, the Sharing the Dream program has been granting educational assistance to more than 2,000 high school students from Batangas, Bulacan, Taguig and Tondo as a way of giving back to the communities where SCG operates. In 2018, SCG Sharing the Dream extended its scholarship grants to college students, both current and incoming alike, to encourage more students to pursue a college degree. In partnership with the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), SCG screened applications and carefully selected 10 awardees who demonstrated academic distinction and the makings of an excellent leader.

This year, a new batch of college will start receiving Php25,000 worth of educational assistance yearly until they finish their chosen degree.

Managing your Digital Footprint

You and your company are one quick Google search away from existing and potential clients, business partners, other organizations and companies — a few taps away from getting reviewed, hired or rejected for a project, partnership or long-term business. Do you know what they are going to see online? How much of you and your company can they see online?

Every time we use the Internet to send emails, visit websites, look or review products or services, or shop online, the internet is looking back at us. The traces we leave online can — and may — be used to get our personal information, identify current location, and even profile our political preferences and other predilections. All these make up what is called a digital footprint.

While it is impossible not to leave digital footprints, managing one’s online identity and reducing one’s digital footprint is not impossible. This crash course will walk us through how to manage our digital footprint.
