Dear Colleagues,
 
Following our fruitful cooperation and my letter sent to you by e-mail on 1-12-2017, 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 promoted its active involvement in the ITU open consultation on bridging the digital gender divide: https://www.itu.int/md/S18-OPCWGINT6-C-0002/en .
 
First of all, a very comprehensive report in Greek has already been uploaded on our website and our page in the social media since 11-1-2018:

In addition, on 11-1-2018 the GSGE comprehensive report was communicated by us to a number of public organizations and independent bodies in Greece and on abroad. The recipients of our document have been the Hellenic Parliament, the Greek Ombudsman, the National Commission for Human Rights, the competent Ministries (Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Administrative Reconstuction, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Education, Research & Religious Affairs), the Permanent Representations of Greece to the International Organizations, as well as the EU Institutions represented in Greece (i.e. the European Commission and the European Parliament), the World Bank and the ITU.
 
Furthermore, after a proposal by the competent GSGE Director for Planning, Standardization and Policy Monitoring on Gender Equality, the General Secretariat for Gender Equality issued a press release in Greek on 12-1-2018, which gained great publicity among the Mass Media and social media in Greece:

In that way, further promotion and greater visibility of our joint pivotal role on bridging the digital divide between women and men, as well as on gender equality in practice have been achieved by our initiative among competent Greek and international stakeholders. 
 
The Greek side would be grateful to you if you informed your political and administrative leadership accordingly.
 
Wishing you and all the members of your team the very best,    
   
  • Yours sincerely,
THE DIRECTOR
