To “imprint” is to make a lasting mark.

It also describes when one person comes to recognize another as a source of trust and support. An “imprint” is defined as a mark or depression made by pressure and an indelible distinguishing effect or influence.

Professional Dimensions’ Imprint award, formerly known as the Sacagawea Award, was originally established in 1982 to  honor career women for their accomplishments as business leaders and trailblazers within the Milwaukee region. Rebranded in 2021, we've expanded this vision to recognize two women who are making a lasting mark in their career, community and collaborations. Like the definitions of “imprint,” they are both successful and supportive. They truly embody the well-rounded character trait, and Professional Dimensions is honored to celebrate their lasting impacts.
