There aren’t enough women at senior levels to act as female role models and to mentor and encourage women coming through the ranks. Some say that women are over mentored and under sponsored but this applies to big international organizations. 90% of European businesses are SMEs which offer no mentoring possibilities for women.
Contact us now if you need women supported in the following areas in your company:
- Onboarding into new roles
- Improving gender balance
- Leadership development
- Career management and progression
- Competency building
- Knowledge exchange

3Plus matches women in your company with internal mentors– highly accomplished professionals within your organization committed to helping other women succeed. 3Plus trains both mentors and mentees in our 1 hour online training program “Get the Most from Mentoring” to manage expectations and to guarantee successful outcomes. As mentees grow professionally, they become mentors to others, creating a mentoring culture in your company. The programme also includes mid-point facilitation and an end of process debriefing.
Option 2. Matching with an external mentor from our Mentor Gallery
With so few women in executive roles, it is hard for organizations to find all, or the right, mentors internally. If you need an external mentor, we have a register of senior women mentors located internationally. We currently offer mentoring services in 10 languages (English, French, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Greek, German, Hungarian, Romanian and Welsh).
All our mentors have had successful careers in their own fields and have acquired deep experience in a range of functions, sectors and industries, they are willing to share. Some are world renown leadership coaches and even best -selling authors. Mentoring contracts are 10 x 50 minute sessions in a 12 month period, which take place online in the comfort of the mentees own home or office, to fit in with busy schedules. Submit the profile of your mentee and we will provide you with a hand selected short list of mentors for consideration.
Visit our Mentor Gallery to select the best possible mentor for a woman in your organization. If you have different requirements let us know, we are a huge community with an extensive global network.

Option 3. An in house Mini-Mentoring Event
3Plus International’s signature Mini-Mentoring event brings together talented aspiring women with executive women mentors who share real-life career advice and wisdom in a high energy, fun and professional environment. Sponsoring a Mini-Mentoring event for women in your company, enhances your employer brand with a message that your company values and accelerates female professionals, while:
- expanding professional networks
- resulting in business development opportunities for your company
- building self-confidence and inspiring women to pursue leadership roles
Extend and anchor your reputation as a gender balance employer by inviting clients, vendors and other stakeholders to participate in an event that can be held in your own premises or off site.
3Plus Mini-Mentoring events have received rave reviews and demands for repeat performances in Silicon Valley, New York City, Boston, London, Paris and Brussels. We gather and brief the mentors – including senior women and board members of your company – and work with you to plan, market and host a fantastic gamified evening of mentoring for maximum engagement of everyone involved.
The demand and competition for high potential women is growing fast, as companies understand the business benefits of having top women in their teams. Research indicates significant returns on shareholder equity. Soon, European countries could be striving to achieve quotas. Is your company ready?
3Plus has a deep understanding of what is needed to identify and attract female candidates and why they are difficult to engage. We know well that women are less visible than their male counterparts in the search for top talent. We know the reasons they de-select from hiring processes and it’s not because they lack confidence. It’s because the protocols are male coded. We offer guidance on how to make your recruitment process gender neutral. This will position your company more positively to female candidates but will not deter your male applicants. The single token woman on the short list will not help you achieve gender balance either.
The competition for well qualified professional women everywhere will only get tougher, just as you need to strengthen your female talent pipeline. The demand for gender balanced shortlists will also grow.
With a team of internationally located, multi-lingual partners, 3Plus offers strictly confidential cross-border executive search and research services to organizations seeking to hire top women across all business sectors and functions, whether corporate clients or international executive search and recruitment organizations.
3Plus International offers corporations and other organizations access to a pipeline of top quality, groomed, female candidates at all levels. The 3Plus Talent Bank is an effective, timely and economic solution to fill your open assignments. We only present the best candidates, those in whom we believe
- Clients receive in the first instance a pro forma confidential CV of a candidate in line with their actual or projected assignment and hiring needs.
- If the client wishes access to a full CV, a formal contract of engagement will be issued for the client’s signature.
- When a complete CV for the candidate is made available, she will become part of the organization’s selection process.
- 3Plus will manage all direct communication with the candidate as per any executive search process, prior to the issue of a formal offer. At this point the client will be responsible for all communication.
- Fees will be made payable on the signature of any offer.
- 3Plus will be responsible for the de-briefing of unsuccessful candidates. Contact us now with your assignment details. If we have no suitable candidates in our Talent Bank we can source those hard to find candidates or conduct a full executive search on your behalf.
Our corporate services program offers flexible, tailor-made services, designed to meet your operational and budgetary requirements. This means that your needs can be met within an optimal time frame and with total transparency and confidentiality. The team effectively combines the best of traditional methodologies with cutting edge techniques to source, develop and attract top-level, hard to find passive candidates for international organizations. With a strong online presence 3Plus is ideally positioned to leverage digital platforms to reach even the hardest to find candidate.
For clients looking for only partial support, candidate name generation and verification of position/ title with contact details in given target companies is also an option. This flexible approach offers you the option to choose which parts of the process you want to drive yourself: opting for research only, this allows you to carry out the rest of the process internally depending on your resources and budget. With full executive search services also within the remit, you can choose the option best suited to your organizational structure and needs.

Generalist search experience in a variety of sectors: banking, consumer goods, luxury and retail, hi-tech and IT, life sciences, financial services, manufacturing and industry.
In many ways we are still guided by anthropological imperatives that no longer have relevance in knowledge based 21st century economies and societies. No one is bias free and nowhere can it be more impactful than the work place. Here decisions are made every minute where unconscious bias creep in undetected.We cannot eliminate bias. We can only manage it.
So whether it’s in hiring decisions and processes, employee terms and conditions, promotion decisions, recruitment documentation, infographics and assignment allocation, it’s important for all managers and anyone in a position of influence and authority to be aware of their own biases.
This applies to both men and women.
3Plus offers a portfolio of gender balance solutions which includes working with you to establish an understanding of the unwritten corporate culture (“this is how we do it here”) to identify the main areas of cultural bias. We work with your teams via coaching and workshop training to gain insights into their own biases especially those involved in the hiring process. Eventually they will develop an awareness to eventually manage their subconscious gender biases.
