Try As Belove:
you can give column name in wpf as: x:Name="Your Column Name".

   <sdk:DataGridTemplateColumn Header="Current Stage" x:Name="Col_Current_Stage" HeaderStyle="{StaticResource dgcolheaderStyle}" Width="150">
                                        <TextBlock  Text="{Binding CURRENT_STAGE}" Style="{StaticResource Style_TextBlock_DGCell}" Name="Txt_Stage"/>

in code behind you can access column as per your requirement.
for example::i want to visible column for only one department then the code behind as,

private void DataGridColumn_Visibility_Setting()
            foreach (var item in dg_Inward.Columns)
                switch (item.GetValue(NameProperty).ToString().ToUpper())
                               case "COL_FILE_NO":           //Column Nmae
                               case "COL_QUERY_DATE":   //Column Name
                               item.IsVisible = GlobalClass.G_CurrentRole.IS_ADMIN_ROLE == true;
