Meet VL’s New Programs
Valley Leadership is committed to engaging every Arizonan to lead. To do so, we've launched three brand new opportunities.
Women Who Lead for Arizona
Arizona’s history has been shaped by incredible women leaders, breaking down barriers in politics and professions and laying the foundation for championing community and civil rights that continues today.
Valley Leadership Welcomes John Meza to Board of Directors
Valley Leadership recently welcomed for John Meza, the inspector general for the Arizona Department of Economic Security, to join its Board of Directors. Get to know the former Mesa Police chief and find out who inspires him, what he’s reading and what he’s looking forward to most this year.
Celebrating Black Leaders in Arizona
Today marks the start of Black History Month, a time to celebrate the achievements and impact of African Americans. As we celebrate, we want to highlight leaders in Arizona.
Three Commitments to Make this Year
January compels us to make commitments. And, as someone who spends a lot of time thinking about leadership development, I’m coming to realize that commitment is truly the core of adaptive leadership. Commitment is the through line that connects the pillars of adaptive leadership and transforms them into a roadmap that all of us can follow.
Ready to Lead in 2021?
You’re no doubt ready to hit the ground running as we start off 2021, and so is VL. If getting engaged in the community is a resolution for you, we’re here to help.
Looking Back on 2020: 12 Days of Impact
As 2020 comes to a close, Valley Leadership’s Impact Maker – and the leaders and community organizations who power its work to strengthen Arizona – has had a busy year. To get into the holiday spirit, we’re looking back on the difference they’ve made and counting them down as 12 Days of Impact.
U.S. Bank donates $100,000 to Valley Leadership as part of its $15 million Rebuild and Transform Fund
U.S. Bank today announced $100,000 in donations to Valley Leadership as part of its $15 million U.S. Bank Foundation Rebuild and Transform Fund, addressing systemic racial inequities in small business, housing and workforce advancement.
How Is a River Formed?
I keep thinking about a proverb that Jack McCain learned when he was in Afghanistan: drop by drop, a river is made. He acknowledged, as so many of us have, that change can take time, but those small changes add up. Our Impact Maker teams work on big, challenging issues that can mean rethinking how our systems are made – and they’ve been busy in these last few months. Drop by drop, they’re having impact and making progress.
