Woven, LLC, has launched its website, www.livewoven.com. The Oklahoma City-based company provides resources to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community throughout the U.S. It is no coincidence that Woven founder and Chief Executive Officer Melinda Olbert chose October 11th as the company’s launch date.
“It seemed fitting for us to ‘come out’ with a unique, ground-breaking resource for the LGBT community on National Coming Out Day,” Olbert said. “The day carries great significance in promoting a safe world for LGBT individuals. Here at Woven, we’re dedicated to providing easy access to the services people need to have a secure future.”
The web-based company is focused on providing timely legal and financial education and resources to members of the LGBT community. The website, www.livewoven.com, includes educational content as well as a national provider directory comprised of attorneys, financial advisors, tax and insurance professionals who have demonstrated competence and passion in working with the unique legal and financial issues faced by LGBT couples and families.
Olbert, an Oklahoma City-based financial advisor, recognized a need for a national online resource that would empower members of the LGBT community to set up necessary financial and legal tools. She recruited Kristin Davis to step in as president of the new company due to her previous startup and management experience. Davis is committed to developing Woven to become a trusted source of educational information regarding legal and financial resources concerning the LGBT community throughout the nation.
“I feel it’s essential to ensure that all Americans have access to even the most basic legal rights that many take for granted,” said Davis. “Same-sex couples have complex needs, and it doesn’t help that the legal landscape is changing at breakneck speed. Woven makes it easy to find highly dedicated experts who understand the issues.”
Woven’s national provider directory is growing every day. Attorneys, financial advisors, CPA’s and insurance professionals who work with the LGBT community and want to be part of the Woven network can apply online at www.livewoven.com.
