“It goes to show how strong women leadership is in Arizona,” says AZ Big Media Publisher Amy Lindsey. “When we established the Most Influential Women, we decided that we would never let a woman make the list twice. This year, we had more than 1,500 women under consideration. It shows the strength of female leadership in our state.”

Here are the Most Influential Women in Arizona from 2012-2021. All names and companies are accurate to the year of each woman’s selection.
