Speakers at a Consultation meeting on publishing of National Human Development Report organized by ERD on Sunday. Photo: CollectedThe government is planning to restart publication of National Human Development Report (NHDR) to facilitate policy dialogue and better understanding of development dynamics, says a press release.The NHDR was published in 1992 for the first time by the government but it did not continue later.The Economic Relations Division (ERD) will publish the report with the support of United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).The decision was taken at a meeting organised by the ERD at the meeting room of Executive Committee of National Economic Council (ECNEC) on Sunday.A total of 40 representatives of different ministries and private sector research organisations took part in the consultation meeting.Speaking at the meeting, Selim Jahan, director of UNDP Human Development Report Office in New York, said that the increase of GDP growth and infrastructural development alone cannot guarantee the human development.“Focus should be the improvement of living standard of the people,” he added.Discussants suggested forming an advisory council to guide the authors’ panel in choosing the themes and contents of the report.Chaired by ERD secretary Kazi Shofiqul Azam, the meeting was addressed by member of general economic division’s member Shamsul Alam, UNDP’s country director Sudipto Mukerjee, CPD’s research director Khondaker Golam Moazzem, and senior research fellow of Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies (BIDS) Nazneen Ahmed.

Only 25 percent of “computing” professionals are women, according to the National Center for Women and Information Technology, and the percentage shrinks moving up the corporate ladder. In fact, only 11 percent of executives at Silicon Valley tech companies are women. And the numbers for women of color are even worse.Related: 3 Ways Women Can Turn Fear of Failure Into Fearless ActionThe causes of this imbalance are many and still debated. They include bias (both conscious and unconscious), structural barriers and organizational culture. In addition, research has found that women working in traditionally male-dominated industries and functions (like technology) have access to fewer leadership development opportunities than men in those fields.As a result, while 80 percent of women in science, engineering and technology report “loving their work,” the female attrition rate in such fields is higher than it is for men. In “high-tech” industries, they leave at more than twice the rate as men (41 percent compared to 17 percent).What’s a talented woman to do when she feels torn between staying and leaving? What’s her organization to do to make sure she stays?What is coaching?Coaching is an increasingly popular strategy used to help talented women build their skills and advance in their careers. Many organizations make the investment themselves in coaching for their “high-potential” employees, and research has shown that coaching can be particularly effective in helping to narrow the gender gap in leadership development.Coaching is a one-on-one relationship in which a professional coach works with an employee or client to achieve personal professional goals, providing feedback and direction that facilitates improvement. Sometimes, organizations or individuals hire coaches from outside the organization. Increasingly, though, they’re training managers or other employees to serve as coaches inside the organization, especially as a way to support performance or supplement more formal learning and development programs.Related: 11 Strategies to Lead and Succeed as a Minority WomanBenefits for the organizationIn addition to the obvious benefits of demonstrating support and encouragement for female employees, an organization profits (literally) in other ways from providing or supporting coaching for its high-potential women. Coaching improves employee engagement, productivity and retention, as well as business management and team effectiveness.As individuals learn to manage relationships better, the entire organization benefits from those improved relationships. Now that organizations are starting to use coaching across levels rather than just for executives, they are building resilience across teams. Coaching also supports recruitment, especially of the ever-in-demand millennial generation.Benefits for the womanSo, what specifically happens in those coaching conversations, and how can they help women in tech?While coaching is not a replacement for therapy, mentoring, or training, it can provide related outcomes and be an important part of a more comprehensive personal and professional development plan. Coaching can support improved leadership, communication, and time management skills and improve self-confidence, relationships, and work-life balance.Popular goals include:Working toward a leadership role.Improving professional performance.Improving relationships.Increasing self-confidence.Managing work-life balance.Sound familiar? Many of these challenges — especially advancing into leadership and managing work-life balance — are common among women in technology.Recent research revealed promising data about coaching, especially regarding its potential to equalize leadership development access between men and women. In a 2017 survey, men were 50 percent more likely than women to say their leadership training was “very effective.” However, when respondents reported having received coaching as part of their leadership development, that difference almost disappeared.If you’re a woman in technology wanting to move into a leadership position, it may be worth finding a coach outside the organization to help you build your skills. However, you may also ask a senior member of your team — one whom you respect and believe has the time and people skills to do the job — to be an informal, on-the-job coach. Make sure this person is willing to coach you and also understands what the role of a coach is (for instance, it’s not the same as a mentor). You might even find that there are people in your organization who have been trained in coaching skills.Related: How to Listen to Your Intuition and Create Your Dream LifeIf you’re a business leader, especially in tech, who wants to improve gender diversity across your organization, consider bringing in an outside coach, or offering training to managers to help them learn to coach high-potential women. You might find that the costs of losing your female employees far outweigh the costs of coaching them.(By Taryn Oesch, CPTM.
