Abstract [en]

This article describes a study of understandings of gender and competence in ICT, among two groups of individuals who use ICT daily at their workplaces. In the study, gender and competence are seen as socially constructed. The main focus is on understandings of gender and competence among the participants in the study, along with social processes which produce, confirm or change those understandings. In the groups studied, competence in ICT was viewed as a question of interest in ICT, where men are more interested in ICT than women. Also, the results can be seen as a confirmation of the view of gender and competence as actively constructed in a social process, in that understandings of the terms were negotiated among individuals in the groups, and were used as norms with which individuals understood themselves and their behaviours. The findings are related to their possible consequences on the construction as well as the use of the Swedish 24/7 agency.
