SUBJECT: Public action of information and sensitization in Greece in favour of the two recent publications by the World Bank entitled “The Little Data Book on Gender 2019” and “Women, Business and the Law 2020”.

 

Dear Colleagues,

 

Following our fruitful cooperation, I would like to inform you that the General Secretariat for Family Policy and Gender Equality, i.e. the governmental organization in charge of equality between women and men in Greece, has already uploaded both on the Greek and the English pages of its website on the internet the two recent publications by the World Bank entitled “The Little Data Book on Gender 2019” and “Women, Business and the Law 2020”:

In addition, the World Bank documents have already been communicated by us to a number of public organizations and independent bodies in Greece and on abroad. The recipients of our message have been, among others, the Hellenic Parliament, the Greek Ombudsman, the National Commission for Human Rights, all Ministries, the Permanent Representations of Greece to International Organizations, as well as all the key social partners.

 

In that way, further promotion and greater visibility of the role of the World Bank Group and its policies on women's empowerment and equality between women and men have been achieved by our initiative among competent Greek stakeholders.

 

The Greek side would be grateful to you if you informed the World Bank leadership accordingly.

 

Wishing you and all the members of your team the very best and a creative New Year,

  

   Yours sincerely,

THE DIRECTOR
