WBJ award honors business leaders who have advanced LGBTQ equality in the Greater Washington DC community.
Washington, D.C. November 13, 2020 – Risk Cooperative CEO and Co-Founder, Andres Franzetti, has been named a 2020 Business of Pride Honoree by the Washington Business Journal on October 2, 2020. The award recognizes Mr. Franzetti’s tireless advocacy of diversity in the workplace and in the broader community. Carrying this philosophy forward, Andres and his co-founders have established Risk Cooperative as a highly diverse, minority and LGBTQ led firm in an industry that is often perceived as more conservative and predominantly male-dominated.
“I am honored to join such a distinguished group of business leaders. Building a diverse financial services firm, comprised of all races, genders and nationalities was an important goal in founding Risk Cooperative. Diversity amongst our highly skilled team only helps to foster innovation and provide unique perspectives that are vital to navigating an ever evolving and complex risk landscape for our clients,” says Andres Franzetti.
This focus on inclusion doesn’t stop at the front door. Risk Cooperative engages with the insurance world on issues of D&I, climate change and financial inclusion. Beyond continuing to build a diverse and inclusive firm, Risk Cooperative continues to focus on creating accessibility to insurance and risk transfer solutions for underserved communities, helping them to build financial and operational resiliency.
The Business of Pride Awards 2020 celebrations were conducted virtually this year for COVID safety precautions. More information about the other honorees can be found at the Washington Business Journal.
