Starkweather and Shepley Insurance Brokerage (S&S) has declared that its vice president Theresa D’Orsi has been named an honoree of Providence Business News’ 2022 Business Women Awards Program.
The program honors the success of women in various businesses such as healthcare, legal, accounting, and social services, among others. It also puts a spotlight on younger, skilled “Women to Watch,” in addition to recognizing experienced “industry leaders.” According to S&S, D’Orsi is being comprehended as an honoree under the Professional Services category of the Industry Leaders award.
“Women are still very underrepresented in the construction business,” commented D’Orsi, who added that “mentorship can help close the gender gap in construction.”
D’Orsi joined S&S in 2016, bringing with her 37 years of insurance industry experience. She affects construction firms in the New England area, providing them with personalized assessments and customized insurance programs, S&S stated.
Last month, S&S elected Randy White Jr. to its loss control and safety team. Joining the Johnson & Johnson DePuy Synthes facility, White will give clients safety and industrial hygiene services and focus on nuisance monitoring as well as environmental monitoring and sampling.
