Women in Business in Greece


Greece is relatively advanced in terms of gender equality in the workplace and foreign business women will be treated fairly and with respect. It is, however, important to maintain a professional approach and distance with male colleagues.

Although it is still fairly unusual to find senior female managers at the very highest levels of Greek-owned organizations, many multi-nationals promote Greek women to positions of authority.

Foreign business women may be surprised to find themselves complimented on their looks or fashion sense by male colleagues — this is all part of 'old-fashioned' Greek charm and should be taken as such.
