Usage Guidance

  • This metric is intended to capture the number of unique individual female managers employed by the organization in full-time roles at the point in time defined by the reporting end date. This metric excludes Temporary Employees (OI9028).
  • Organizations can refer to the glossary for additional guidance on defining management. The composition of management can vary based on an organization's stage and type. Generally, managers are responsible for setting objectives (setting goals for the group and deciding what work needs to be done to meet those goals), for organizing (dividing work into manageable activities and selecting the right people to accomplish the tasks), for motivating and communicating (creating a team from the individuals through decisions on pay, promotion, and communications with the team), for measuring (establishing targets, interpreting and analyzing performance), and for developing people.
  • Organizations are also encouraged to footnote if the number reported for this metric includes any female managers in the following positions: Chief Executive Officer/President, Chief Operating Officer, or Chief Financial Officer.
