Myesha Thompson named director of Own It: Building Black Wealth initiative

Own It: Building Black Wealth, a privately funded Madison organization that supports community members of color with homebuying and building wealth, has named Myesha Thompson as its new director, according to a report from Madison365.

Thompson has previously worked for the state of Wisconsin in addition to being a licensed financial advisor and insurance agent.

Own It: Building Black Wealth is designed to eliminate barriers to wealth and homeownership for Black families in the Greater Madison area. While Own It is currently a program for families at One City Schools, Thompson hopes to expand the organization to have a broader reach.
