Liz Martin-Malikian, the CEO/executive director of The Cosanti Foundation, is making an impact.

We celebrate each for their achievements within the workplace and for their commitments to their respective communities.”

The Cosanti Foundation is an Arizona-based nonprofit with a mission to inspire a reimagined urbanism that builds resilient and equitable communities sustainably integrated with the natural world. The Foundation’s vision is a world of equitable communities which improve earth-life balance and do better with less. There are two signature properties in Arizona—Cosanti and Arcosanti. Cosanti is located in Paradise Valley on the border of Scottsdale. Arcosanti is near Mayer in Central Arizona.
