Greece: Gender Equality in Business
The non-profit organisation Women On Top, whose work is aimed at the professional empowerment of women and in promoting equality at work, implemented a bilateral activity on the topic of “Gender equality in the corporate world: what can we learn from Norway and Iceland about empowering women in business”.
The bilateral activity was financially supported by the EEA Grants within the framework of the Business Innovation Programme in Greece. Read more about it here: Greece: Gender Equality in Business! Transfer of Practices in a Cooperation between Greece, Norway and Iceland.
In this bilateral activity, Women On Top partnered with Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise and Kvinner i Business from Norway as well as the Association of Women Business Leaders from Iceland. Their aim was identifying and sharing best practices from Norway and Iceland, and supporting the Greek private business sector in leveraging this knowledge to produce its own set of policies and tools in order to improve their equality and inclusion results.
Their findings were included in a comprehensive report, which you can find here. The report is divided into 5 sections covering key points of progress which Iceland and Norway have made in matters of equality, as well as tools and examples that could be adapted to Greek reality.
New Call for Proposals on Soft Measures
The Business Innovation Greece Programme has just launched a Soft Measures Call, which is aimed at increasing capacity building within Greek businesses. Female entrepreneurs could benefit from this Call through training, coaching, and mentoring activities, which would help them develop core competencies on how to establish or grow businesses.
