Janette Braverman, '09, to receive 2021 Imprint Award from Professional Dimensions

Janette Braverman, '09, Stritch's executive director of external partnerships, has been selected to receive the inaugural 2021 Imprint Award from Professional Dimensions

Dawn Yang, owner of Alternative Family Services LLC, and co-owner and general manager of Nyob Zoo Milwaukee TV, will also receive an Imprint Award. 

The Imprint Award was created in 2021 to recognize two women who are making a lasting mark in their career, community and collaborations, following a year-long reimagining of the organization's longstanding Sacajawea award. 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.

Braverman has over 25 years of experience in IT, has been in public services roles, is a founder of Leaders Leaving Legacies, LLC and the author of 10 Reasons Communication Brings Transformation: Unleash Your Greatness. She has been recognized by the Milwaukee Business Journal as a Woman of Influence in 2018, and as a Power Broker in 2020. In 2019, she received the NAACP Game Changer Award for being an inspirational community leader.

Braverman is the founder of Leaders Leaving Legacies. She is a member of the  Ozaukee County Board of Supervisors and is the president of the Ozaukee County Branch of the NAACP.

Braverman is involved in several organizations focused on empowering women leaders and is on the Board of Directors for the Zoological Society of Milwaukee and a steering committee member for Milwaukee Women, Inc.

“These two women represent the best of what PD has honored in women leaders for 40+ years, first as the Sacagawea Awards and now as the Imprint Award,” Professional Dimensions president Jamie Pratt said in the announcement. “These are fearless leaders who commit to making the world better for all and follow in the footsteps of the 78 prior award winners.” Professional Dimensions, a membership organization founded in 1978, will recognize Braverman and Yang during a virtual event July 29.
