A day as a management consultant

On March 28th, we are delighted to be taking part for the fifth time in Girls' Day, the world's largest career orientation project for schoolgirls from the fifth grade upwards. Girls and young women have the chance to get an insight into jobs in which the proportion of women has so far been less than 40 percent.

Women are also underrepresented in management consulting, in some cases even significantly. With an average female employment rate of just under 21 percent, especially large consulting firms have a lot of catching up to do. According to the annual study “Facts & Figures on the Consulting Market” by the Federal Association of German Management Consultants BDU e.V., smaller companies show a much more positive development with 36 percent. 3con Management Consultants is also on this scale.

“We are always on the lookout for talented consultants with outstanding analytical and creative intelligence and an authentic personality - regardless of gender”, says Dr. Gebhard Grimm, founding partner and managing director of 3con. “This year, we are giving a total of ten young women aged 13 and over the opportunity to form their own impressions of the seemingly male world”. Grimm emphasizes that the 3con consultants personally look after the applicants. “They give initial insights into the daily work and encourage the girls to try out typical tasks on their own”.

Girls' Day is sponsored by the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth and the Federal Ministry for Education and Research. Since the campaign was launched in 2001, around 1.9 million girls have taken part.
