Margaret Wood

Until 2005 Margaret worked in the public sector where she was involved for a number of years with women’s development. Having successfully encouraged women to achieve their full potential she decided when becoming self-employed to work with those over 50 to do the same and in 2014, she co-founded Opportunity 50 Plus®. It soon became apparent that there was a need to support not only individuals over 50 but also organisations who potentially can have up to 5 different generations making up their workforces. 
In collaboration with Acas (Arbitration, Conciliation & Advisory Service) and its Age Audit Tool, Margaret has designed a Managing and Motivating a Multi-Generational Workforce Programme to support organisations in becoming recognised as Age-Diverse.
With the imminent introduction of Gender Pay Gap reporting the time is also ripe for exploring the issues facing organisations particularly with cultures that have historically favoured men and supporting them in tackling unconscious bias among recruiters and line managers to improve equality and providing development programmes for women specifically designed to focus on the different challenges they face at fundamental stages in their lives. 
With all of this in mind Opportunity 50 Plus®, has now become The Opportunity Group with three further strands, Opportunity Multi-Generational, Opportunity for Women and Opportunity Multi-Cultural.
