A successful comprehensive information and awareness-raising campaign by the Greek General Secretariat for Gender Equality on the SDG Index Reports

Feb 08, 2019




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 SDG Index Reports on a national and international level with special emphasis on the status of SDG 5 in Greece.

First of all, on 30-1-2019 a very comprehensive letter on the topic signed by the competent GSGE Director for Planning, Standardization & 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, as well as the EU Institutions represented in Greece (i.e. the European Commission and the European Parliament) and the World Bank.

The relevant material has already been uploaded on our website; despite the fact that the text is in Greek, you will recognize the links to the SDG Index Reports at once:

Furthermore, after a proposal by the competent GSGE Director for Planning, Standardization & Policy Monitoring on Gender Equality, the General Secretariat for Gender Equality issued a press release in Greek on 4-2-2019 (relevant link: http://www.isotita.gr/δελτίο-τύπου-η-πρόοδος-της-ελλάδας-στη/ ), which gained great publicity among the Mass Media and social media in Greece.

In that way, further promotion and greater visibility of our pivotal role on gender mainstreaming and equality between women and men have been achieved by our initiative among competent Greek stakeholders.
