3Plus International

Why are we called 3Plus?

Because it takes more than 3 of any demographic out of a group of 10 to change the dynamic of any organization.

3Plus International is a business services consultancy that supports organizations building diverse and inclusive workplaces through gender balance, equity, and belonging.

Led by Founder Dorothy Dalton, our mission is to strengthen the female talent pipeline within organizations to help them achieve business success and benefit from the “gender dividend” associated with gender-balanced and inclusive workplaces.

This involves attracting the right female talent to your business and ensuring that your organization has best practices in place to retain and empower women, thereby creating inclusive workplaces which value diversity.

 

3Plus International was originally set up on social media as a support and resource hub for individual women to advance their careers and to work with companies which believe in diversity, gender balance and advancing female talent. The mission statement is reflected in the name of the company. You need three women in any group of ten, to change the dynamic of the group culture.

Today, we are active on the global market to support businesses who want to hire top female talent and to help them reach their potential, not just as women leaders, but leaders full stop. We also support business in their commitment to diversity and inclusion because organisations which combine gender balance with diversity and inclusion are more effective in all key business areas:

  •  Winning the war on talent
  • Growing your market
  • Increasing team performance
  • Increasing innovation
  • Enhancing your employer brand
  • Improving collective decision making
  • And so much more.

EXECUTIVE SEARCH & RECRUITMENT

3Plus works with organizations to identify, attract and retain female talent to strengthen the female talent pipeline. Female candidates everywhere it’s just that traditional methodologies  don’t know how to find them and engage them in the recruitment process. Without innovative approaches and an understanding of the gender differences in job search and career management many organizations fall back on old school ways and fail to produe the best results or even the right results.

3Plus has the skills, network contacts and expertise to support all organisations in their war for talent.

COACHING PROGRAMS

3Plus offers coaching programs for individual women and corporations to help the women achieve their potential and make their businesses thrive. We support all efforts to increase soft skills and specific competences when women face barriers in the workplace.

CORPORATE TRAINING PROGRAMS

We offer Corporate training programs either face to face or online – to develop key competencies, soft and leadership skills to facilitate promotion and career development.

We have adapted our content to meet the new challenges created by the global pandemic as we all learn to cope with social distancing regulations. Check out our corporate training portfolio to find what you are looking for or request a customized training programme.

MENTORING PROGAMS

Women can’t be what they don’t see and hear. Most organizations have few female role models and bringing in an external mentor can make a massive difference to career success. 3plus offers mentoring programs, coaching women how to make the most of mentoring and men on how to mentor women. Research shows that men unconsciously mentor women differently to men.

Any company wishing to build or strengthen its female talent pipeline should contact 3Plus NOW!

Quotes

The biggest stumbling block for women? According to our research with hundreds of senior women, it's a lack of a career strategy and navigating the hidden challenges of male coded workplaces.  Work with us to change that. We’ve got the formula.

Dorothy Dalton

Bias is so deeply embedded into our cultures that it can be very difficult for both men and women to understand the impact they have on our corporate culture. Bias is so ingrained into our daily lives that we unconsciously perpetuate stereotypes and non-inclusive behaviours without thinking twice about them.

Dorothy Dalton

Every single one of us needs professional development. We would never say men need fixing, we would say they need training.
