Geri Denterlein, a Cambridge resident and founder and CEO of Denterlein, recently was named an honoree for this year’s Tribute to Abigail Adams by the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus.

Denterlein, a strategic communications firm, has worked at the intersection of business, government and journalism. Denterlein traces her feminist roots to her high school years when she joined the organization, “Catholic Women for the Equal Rights Amendment.” A volunteer with the American Red Cross, she was a founding member of its Tiffany Circle, an international society of women leaders and philanthropists. Denterlein wrote “The Power Chicks’ Guide to Boston,” a resource for young professionals and recently released the second edition as an e-book, “The Power Chicks’ Guide to Influence in the Digital Age.”

The annual Tribute to Abigail Adams honors distinguished female leaders who have worked in their personal and professional lives to achieve parity for women across all realms. The Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus introduced the Tribute to Abigail Adams in 1988 to recognize women leaders in Massachusetts.

“The MWPC is proud to recognize each of these incredible leaders whose accomplishments span the nonprofit, private and academic sectors,” said Laurie Martinelli, MWPC executive director. “Throughout their careers, our 2018 honorees have shown consistent dedication to the advancement of women. Their approach is dynamic and multifaceted; their work is informed by an understanding of the varying challenges women face in society; and their achievements range from passing legislation focused on advancing gender equality in the Commonwealth, to mentoring and empowering individual women to follow in their footsteps.”

This year’s event will be held on Oct. 10 at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston.
