Athens, 14-3-2017              To: - EIGE.

                                                 

Dear Colleagues,

Following our fruitful coperation,  I would like to inform you that the General Secretariat for Gender Equality (GSGE), i.e. the governmental organization in charge of equality between women and men in Greece, has widely publicized the key findings of the EIGE Report on the economic benefits of gender equality in the European Union, since gender equality boosts economic growth (Vilnius, March 2017: http://eige.europa.eu/sites/default/files/documents/mh0217174enn_web.pdf ).

More specifically:

detailed article written by the competent GSGE Director for Development & Support of Policies on Gender Equality has already been uploaded since the 9th of March, 2017 on our page of the website on the internet and the facebook with positive reaction by citizens, both men and women; the article includes both the link to the full text of the EIGE Report and selected data on the status of women in the EU.

The relevant links are the following: 

a) website of the General Secretariat for Gender Equality:

- Greek version: http://www.isotita.gr/index.php/news/3036

- English version: http://www.isotita.gr/en/index.php/news/653 ;

b) page of the General Secretariat for Gender Equality on the facebook:

In addition, the relevant GSGE document has already been communicated since the 9th of March, 2017 by us to a number of public organizations and independent bodies in Greece. The recipients of our document have been, among others, the Hellenic Parliament, the Greek Ombudsman, the National Commission for Human Rights, the General Secretariat of the Government, the Greek Ministries, the Permanent Representation(-s) of Greece to the European Union and other International Organizations, the social partners, the European Institute for Gender Equality, as well as the EU Institutions (European Commission and European Parliament) via their Representations in Greece. 

Under a proposal by the competent GSGE Director for Development & Support of Policies on Gender Equality, a comprehensive press release was issued in Greek on the 13th of March, 2017.

The press release has already been disseminated to an extensive list of recipients throughout the country: mass media (newspapers, television channels, radio stations, internet sites, blogs), the Hellenic Parliament, Independent Authorities (e.g. the Ombudsman, the National Commission for Human Rights), Ministries, Local Authorities (Regions and Municipalities), as well as all the key social partners.

In addition, it has been uploaded on our website on the internet and our page on the facebook with positive reaction by citizens, both men and women (the link to the EIGE Report is present in the second paragraph of the two-page press release):

In that way, further promotion and greater visibility of the leading and inspirational role of the European Union and its specialized research and documentation organization EIGE on gender equality and our commitment to equality between women and men have been achieved by our initiative among competent Greek stakeholders.

The Greek side would be grateful if you informed your leadership and the officials of the competent administrative units accordingly.

Wishing you and all the members of your team the very best,    

   

   Yours sincerely,

THE DIRECTOR
