Our history


Created as a passion project by a handful of Googlers focused on solving identity challenges for the world’s identity invisibles.


To maximize the project’s impact, One World Identity, LLC was launched in early 2016 to help facilitate the growing need for shared language and cross-sector collaboration, connecting the next wave of identity innovators to experts and resources.


Expanding beyond community building, OWI has quickly become one of the most recognized and sought-after advisory and strategy firms focused on identity in North America and UK.


In 2018, OWI is set to host the second annual KNOW Identity conference, teach the world about identity, trust and safety, and revolutionize how client services are offered with the OWI Advisory Platform, Link.
