Hola Silvia, no estoy seguro pero creo que \"de medios\" significa \"halfway\" en tu frase, o sea las mujeres trabajan un poco como \"managers\" porque mandan a algunos empleados, pero no son verdaderos \"managers\"

Me parece que habría que poner semimanagerial and managerial positions para cubrir los puestos medios y los jerárquicos.
Mil gracias.
