It’s no secret the construction industry skews disproportionately male, but that hasn’t stopped Jody Staruk over her 18-year tenure at Consigli Construction Co, Inc., in Milford, where she is the first female project executive in the company’s 116-year history and the first woman to win its Builder of the Year award.

In March, she was profiled in Fast Company magazine for leading the all-woman construction leadership team for the $17-million renovation of the YWCA Central Massachusett facility.

She actively recruits more women into the field, serves on the board of directors at Girls Inc. of Worcester, and participates as a member of the National Association of Women in Construction. “When I was growing up, I knew nothing about the opportunities available within the construction industry,” Staruk said. “I love being able to expose young women to the possibility of a non-traditional career path.” In that vein, Staruk is shaping not only buildings, but minds and industry, too.

What do you think the future holds for Central Mass.? “Worcester has become a much cleaner, safer, and interesting city ... We will only see it improve more in the coming years.”

Warming to the outdoors: “I grew up in Maine, but never skied or snowmobiled until I came here. It’s cold in Maine, and I was too busy playing basketball.”
