My words today come from Broad Influence: How Women Are Changing the Way America Works by Jay Newton-Small.
"There is a rubric that a woman has to be asked on average seven times to run for office before she agrees."
- c : an explanatory or introductory commentary: an editorial interpolation
- 2: a heading of a part of a book or manuscript done or underlined in a color (as red) different from the rest
- 3: an established rule, tradition, or custom
- 4: a guide listing specific criteria for grading or scoring academic papers, projects, or tests
There are a lot of definitions for rubric. I think number 3 is how it is intended in this sentence.
"At most big tech companies, 30 percent of the employees are women, but only a few of those women are coders or engineers, usually a tech company's most vaunted and influential employees."
: often spoken of or described as very good or great : often praised
