A brief introduction will explain the state of women in computing in the nine countries represented on the panel. Each panelist will then discuss the 2 or 3 major barriers to improving the recruitment and retention of women in computing in their country. Looking at the critical issues that are reoccurring within these countries a discussion will then ensue about what strategies that can be used to enable the dismantling of these barriers around the globe. The focus will be on how can we move forward?
