Impact Maker

Life-long leadership fueling long-term impact on Arizona’s most pressing issues. 

Leading AZ

Impact Maker is powered by Arizonans like you. Get to know our Impact Teams and the people leading the work through Impact Maker.

We believe that leadership is action.

Valley Leadership (VL) launched Impact Maker as a collaborative space to solve challenges together. As part of Impact Maker, our leaders roll up their sleeves and get to work right away – drawing on the values, skills and perspective gained from their VL experience. 

Joined with strategic partners and community champions, they’re able to chart a path toward thoughtful, strategic solutions on the issues that matter most to Arizona.
