Abstract: This research paper relates to managerial parity in the hotel industry. The restaurant, reception and housekeeping sectors are gendered and women’s presence is obviously scattered. Paired with theoretical concepts, we attempt to clarify the impact of the past and present on women’s social representations as managers. Emerging empirical methodology triangulation and analysis have provided us with plural and complementary results in order to answer our research questions. Indeed, this mixed methodology leads us to better understand manager social representations with the purpose of confronting them in face of managers’ activities, depending on the sector in which they work.

Keywords: hotel, parity, manager, social representations, activity analysis
