DIRECTORATE FOR PLANNING, STANDARDIZATION AND POLICY MONITORING ON GENDER EQUALITY
Athens, 11-3-2020 To: EIGE.
THEME: A successful comprehensive information and awareness-raising campaign by the Greek General Secretariat for Family Policy and Gender Equality on two recent developments in the EU (“Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025” and EIGE).
Following our fruitful cooperation, I would like to inform you that the General Secretariat for Family Policy and Gender Equality (GSFPGE), i.e. the governmental organization in charge of equality between women and men in Greece, has widely promoted the two recent developments in the field of equality between women and men in the EU.
First of all, on the 8th of March, 2020 a concrete article on the “Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025” initiated by the European Commission was uploaded on our website and our page in the social media:
a) our website (you will easily recognize the two links to the EC material): http://www.isotita.gr/%ce%b7-%cf%83%cf%84%cf%81%ce%b1%cf%84%ce%b7%ce%b3%ce%b9%ce%ba%ce%ae-%cf%84%ce%b7%cf%82-%ce%b5%cf%85%cf%81%cf%89%cf%80%ce%b1%cf%8a%ce%ba%ce%ae%cf%82-%ce%ad%ce%bd%cf%89%cf%83%ce%b7%cf%82-%ce%b3%ce%b9/ ;
b) our page on the facebook: https://www.facebook.com/%CE%93%CE%B5%CE%BD%CE%B9%CE%BA%CE%AE-%CE%93%CF%81%CE%B1%CE%BC%CE%BC%CE%B1%CF%84%CE%B5%CE%AF%CE%B1-%CE%99%CF%83%CF%8C%CF%84%CE%B7%CF%84%CE%B1%CF%82-%CF%84%CF%89%CE%BD-%CE%A6%CF%8D%CE%BB%CF%89%CE%BD-388822604594196/ .
In addition, on the 6th of March, 2020 a very comprehensive letter in Greek on the “Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025” initiated by the competent “GSFPGE Director for Planning, Standardization and Policy Monitoring on Gender Equality” 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, the EU Institutions represented in Greece (i.e. the European Commission and the European Parliament), as well as certain International Organizations.
As far as the “European Institution for Gender Equality (EIGE)” is concerned, it is underlined that on the 4th of March, 2020 the Greek version of the EIGE’s Thesaurus, as well as the EIGE’s publications on Greece were uploaded on our website:
i) the page in Greek: http://www.isotita.gr/%ce%ad%cf%81%ce%b5%cf%85%ce%bd%ce%b5%cf%82-%cf%84%ce%bf%cf%85-%ce%b5%cf%85%cf%81%cf%89%cf%80%ce%b1%cf%8a%ce%ba%ce%bf%cf%8d-%ce%b9%ce%bd%cf%83%cf%84%ce%b9%cf%84%ce%bf%cf%8d%cf%84%ce%bf%cf%85-%ce%b3/
ii) the page in English: http://www.isotita.gr/en/eiges-thesaurus-and-publications-on-greece/ .
In that way, further promotion and greater visibility of our joint pivotal role on 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 your leadership and all the competent units accordingly.
Wishing you and all the members of your team the very best,
