This study attempted to identify the subjective and objective factors that hinder the leadership of female supervisors in Taiwan-funded enterprises, to ensure the normal development of female supervisor leadership, and to put forward suggestions accordingly.
After literature review was done and analysis was completed , the factors affecting the leadership of female supervisors were summarized. Taiwan-funded enterprises are neither foreign-funded enterprises, nor rooted in the mainland, however, they hold traditional concepts as enterprises do in China. They also have the characteristics of market economy management as foreign-funded enterprises. With regard to the leadership of female supervisors in Taiwan-funded enterprises,the influencing factors are collated and summarized into three categories: personal factors, organizational factors, and cultural factors. The research offers a discussion on how to ensure the normal exertion of leadership of female supervisors in Taiwan-funded enterprises. A proposal was made in order to promote the development of Taiwan-funded enterprises, to provide better growth opportunity and platform female executives, improve the core competitiveness of Taiwan-funded enterprises, and promote healthy and orderly development of Taiwan-funded enterprises in mainland China.
A questionnaire was used to conduct an empirical study on conceptual models.

A total of 650 questionnaires was recovered, and SPSS 20 and AMOS 23 were used for statistical analysis. Data reliability and validity, variance and other analysis methods used and second-order factor analysis and hypotheses testing were done. The following findings were drawn:
The leadership of female supervisors in Taiwan-funded enterprises in mainland China is affected by personal factors. Among them are gender, age, length of work participation, education level, and business type.These factors have a significant impact on their leadership. Organizational factors such as internal relationships, person-organizational fit, procedural rules, and organizational growth opportunity have a significant positive impact on the leadership of female Taiwanese enterprises in mainland China. The influence of cultural factors is also insignificant.
Therefore, enterprises must pay attention to whether the system of the corporate organization is sound and whether the cultural atmosphere is grounded. When selecting people for employment, personal factors should be included in the scope of consideration. For female supervisors with long working years and high academic qualifications, the use of management positions should be strengthened. Women also need to make full use of their own dominant personal conditions when they are in charge.
