Arizona Aims Higher 

Arizona children deserve a world-class education that prepares them for the future. It's time to Aim Higher! 


"The growth and vitality of Arizona are anchored on a solid infrastructure.  GPL gives us a venue to focus collectively on infrastructure requisites such as transportation, education and environmental quality.  In partnership with policy makers, other business and community organizations, GPL can help secure a strong foundation upon which our economy will thrive and our families will flourish."

Welcome to
Greater Phoenix Leadership

Thirty plus years ago, three Phoenix business leaders called together the region’s top business and civic leaders to address major problems facing the community.  The invitation read in part “the immediate future of Phoenix may depend upon the response of business leadership to the challenge.”  All forty individuals invited to the meeting attended.

Today, Greater Phoenix Leadership (GPL) members collectively represent 105 top companies and over 250,000 employees.  Members work together to move forward initiatives, public policy and projects that will strengthen the future of Arizona.  They believe it is their responsibility to help do so.

GPL recognizes that community involvement garners its best result when done collaboratively.  Through engagement and results-producing relationships with philanthropic organizations, government and educators, GPL members are committed to making the greater Phoenix region and the State of Arizona the place where citizens want to live, work, raise a family and earn a quality education.
