Athens, 13-3-2019 To: - EIGE.
Following our fruitful cooperation, 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 the 2019 Report on Equality between Women and Men in the European Union (Brussels, March 2019) on a national and international level:
First of all, a very comprehensive article in Greek and a concrete summary in English have already been uploaded on our website and our page in the social media:

In addition, on 8-3-2019 the GSGE's comprehensive article on the key points of the EC 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, among others, the Hellenic Parliament, the Greek Ombudsman, the National Commission for Human Rights, all Ministries, the Permanent Representations of Greece to the International Organizations, all the key social partners, as well as the EU Institutions represented in Greece (i.e. the European Commission and the European Parliament) and other International Organizations (i.e. the Greek key policy officers at the Council of Europe, the World Bank and the UNESCO).
Furthermore, the General Secretariat for Gender Equality issued a press release in Greek on 12-3-2019 after a generous proposal by the competent GSGE Director for Planning, Standardization and Policy Monitoring on Gender Equality, which gained publicity among the Mass Media and social media in Greece:

In that way, further promotion and greater visibility of our joint pivotal role on women's empowerment and gender equality in practice have been achieved by our initiative among competent Greek stakeholders.
The Greek side would be grateful to you if you informed your political and administrative leadership, as well as the officials of the competent administrative units accordingly.
Wishing you and all the members of your team the very best,
