Something of a civil rights trailblazer, Putnam served as assistant AG for civil rights in Massachusetts and also chairwoman of the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination. She later served as deputy assistant secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity in D.C. At the same event, Rosalin Acosta, New England TD Bank Regional Wealth Leader, Delta Dental CEO Fay Donohue, CEO Sheila Marcelo, Massachusetts first lady Diane Patrick, and State Street executive VP Alison Quirk were all inducted into the YWCA’s Academy of Women Achievers.
