This Gender Action Plan (GAP) aims towards identifying activities and performance indicators for addressing and promoting Gender Equality within KiNNO Innovation Intermediaries (KiNNO). KINNO acknowledges that ensuring gender balance and accounting for the gender dimension in fundamental areas of operation, are key elements in its operation. Therefore, KiNNO is committed to gender equality promotion within the organization. By prioritizing diversity and inclusion, we aim to harness the full potential of our workforce and contribute to more robust, innovative, and competitive solutions. This GAP outlines our strategy for achieving these goals, following EU guidelines for equal opportunities, thus ensuring that gender equality is at the forefront of our corporate agenda.
KINNO's GAP is in accordance with Greek gender equality legislation (Law 4604/2019 - Official Gazette 50/A/26-3-2019) and adheres to European Union directives concerning gender rights and equality, including Directives 2000/78/EC, 2006/54/EC, 2010/41/EU, and 92/85/EEC2. KiNNO‘s GAP follows the direction of “The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE)”. Furthermore, KINNO aligns its efforts with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Specifically, the GAP is grounded in SDG 5 (Gender Equality), SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), and SDG 10 (Reduced Inequalities). These SDGs serve as the foundational principles for our GAP, while our progress will be monitored in alignment with the progress described in the Gender Snapshot 2021.
