Leadership Programming

We’ve been strengthening Arizona leaders for over 40 years. How we prepare leaders is guided by our Principles of Doing – to lead most effectively in Arizona. And, no matter how you engage with us, you’ll come away with new skills and experiences, new connections, broader perspective and a personal plan for how you’ll make a difference going forward.

Impact Maker

We launched Impact Maker as a collaborative space to solve challenges together, with a commitment to long-term change that strengthens Arizona. We invite all Valley Leadership alumni to support and join this effort, working with community champions and experts to create and execute thoughtful, strategic solutions to issues that matter most to Arizona. 

What’s Happening at VL

To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, we interviewed Dr. Dani Portillo, Superintendent of Roosevelt School District and graduate of both our Catalyze and Explore programs, to discuss her role at RSD and the importance of ensuring that our Hispanic population has equal access to educational opportunities and resources.
