Sophie Pochic CV

Specialist in sociology of work and gender, research director at the CNRS, she is a member of the Centre Maurice Halbwachs (CNRS-EHESS-ENS). Graduated in social sciences (ENS Cachan), after a master's degree in sociology of education, she turned towards sociology of employment, in her PhD on the managers faced to unemployment (2001), with Paul Bouffartigue as director. She compared the impacts of unemployment and the job search experience between women and men, according to their previous career (graduate / promoted executives) and their family situation.

She has developed reflexions on gender, work and organisations through surveys on the "glass ceiling" and gender equality policies in companies, in trade unions and more recently in the state civil service. In a gendered societal approach, she made with Cécile Guillaume a European comparison (France, England, Hungary, ESF funding) on the place of women within trade unions. She recently defended her Habilitation thesis in May 2017 on corporate equality policies, with a manuscript entitled "Elitist equality or market feminism. Gender and power in a multinational", which will be published later as a book.

She is currently working on the collective bargaining for equality, with a specific focus on the use of figures as a bargaining tool, particularly around equal pay. She has produced a report in 2018 on this subject for the Dares-Ministry of Labour, and is a member of the CSEP (Conseil supérieur de l'égalité professionnelle) since 2016.  

Between 2001 and 2010, she was actively involved in the scientific committee of the GDR Cadres network, which published the book Cadres, classes moyennes, vers l'éclatement? (2011), and was a member of the Scientific Council of the Observatoire des cadres (CFDT).

Since 2014, she is a member of the scientific committee of the MAGE network (Labour Market and Gender) and since 2017 a member of the editorial board of the scientific journal Travail, Genre et Sociétés.
