Footnotes

Footnote *

In all cases where an institution’s equity targets and the representation data is less than five, results are withheld in order to protect the privacy of chairholders in alignment with the Privacy Act. There may be additional institutions that are not meeting their equity targets and have consequences imposed against them, but only those shown could be reflected in the table above. As of September 2021, a total of nine institutions have had consequences imposed for not meeting their December 2019 equity targets. In all cases, these institutions are limited to submitting new nominations only when individuals self-identify as belonging to one or more of the designated groups, and when the institution has a target for that group.
