Catch Business Leader Kiko Davis Snoddy on September 13 at the 15th Anniversary EWOC Awards & Expo
By Michael P Coleman, freelance writer
Oprah Winfrey needs to watch her back, ‘cause Kiko Davis Snoddy is out in these streets! She’s headlining next week’s 15th Anniversary Celebration Exceptional Women of Color (EWOC) Awards & Expo in Sacramento. This year’s theme is “Building Sustainable Wealth.”
Snoddy runs the Donald Davis Living Trust, which is the majority shareholder of First Independence Bank, the 7th largest black-owned bank in the United States. She’s a global entrepreneur, orator, advocate, and author. As a philanthropist, she supports a host of non-profits in her home of Detroit and across the nation, including the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the United Negro College Fund, and the NAACP.
She has a lot of wisdom to share about building wealth and overcoming obstacles that try to stand in the path of achieving our dreams. “It’s never too late to grow your wealth,” Snoddy said. “What matters is that you start. Set clear financial goals, long and short term. Determine what accomplishing your goals will provide for you. Work on a plan…and implement it! There may be challenges and…delays…[but] in those moments you will gain valuable knowledge, build relationships, and the capacity to propel you forward!”
Snoddy promised me that on September 13, she’d walk EWOC event attendees through the “hows” of forward propulsion, and how she overcame setbacks before getting to the top of the mountain.
You don’t want to miss it! The EWOC Awards program is an annual community event presented by the Sac Cultural Hub Media Foundation in partnership with a host of corporate sponsors and community partners.
Later this month, look for the Fall 2023 issue of THE HUB magazine for more from Kiko Davis Snoddy.
