|This paper describes policies and initiatives to foster gender equality in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)-related education and employment in Greece. Various Greek government authorities are responsible to issue and implement policies for promoting gender equality and non-discrimination. Many initiatives aim at empowering women with digital skills. National and European Union (EU) statistics show that there exists a wide gender gap in STEM-related higher education participation, employment, and salaries in Greece. Although there exists a gender gap in STEM education participation and graduation, the gender gap in digital skills is narrow. Furthermore, the gender gap in STEM unemployment, employment, high rank job positions, and salaries is wide. Finally, the paper recommends both specific actions to be taken in order to increase women participation in STEM and specific indicators to monitor them.
