WOMEN PARTICIPATION CAN
BE A GAME CHANGER IN GDP!

Women participation in technological field is viewed as a doubtful career. They are considered not to be equally good in complex fields such as science or technology. Moreover, choosing career over families is a taboo for women. Many women are forced to choose between motherhood and their career. A large number of young university graduates enter the job market with a lot of enthusiasm. But that starts to fade within a few years as they are expected to expand their families. This mid-way exodus of female executives reduces the number of capable women in senior positions.

Study said Bangladesh can increase its GDP growth by 1.6% if female labor participation increases from 33.7% currently to 82%, a figure on par with the present male labor participation rate. If a favorable and flexible schedule and place can be ensured, women participation in building career can be remarkable raised.

HIGH‑GROWTH

PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED
PEOPLE ARE RESOURCE NOT A CURSE !​

There are an estimated 16 million people with disabilities in Bangladesh, or 10% of the country’s population. In 2004, the prevalence of disability was about 6% among those below the age of 18 and about 14% among those above that age.

Despite national policies that protect the rights of persons with disabilities (for example, a 10% job quota for persons with disabilities), in reality they face unfair competition or neglected. They are often cut off the main stream and viewed as a CURSE. We need to create work opportunities for these potential people and provide them equal respectful and economically independent life.
