Greece is relatively advanced in terms of gender equality in the workplace and foreign businesswomen 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 organisations, 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.
