Information Insights, Inc. is a woman-owned research and management consulting firm in Alaska. The company maintains a core focus on public health and public policy, with additional areas of expertise in public process facilitation, community and rural development, business administration, and nonprofit management. Our staff includes individuals with academic and professional backgrounds in education, economics, communications and marketing, web development and graphic design. In line with our strong belief in investing in our community, we employ three research interns from the University of Alaska.

In addition to research and facilitation services, Information Insights has developed in-house expertise in conference and event planning, communication and media planning, program evaluation, and website development. We provide administrative support for several statewide organizations.

We assemble a custom team for each project and tailor the process to fit the project goals. Our flexible and responsive style works to meet our clients’ needs without a cookie cutter approach. Many become repeat customers because of our knowledge of Alaska issues and organizations and our commitment to meeting each client’s unique situation.

Our approach matches information with creativity and vision to develop the best solutions for our clients. We work on projects throughout the state from our office in Fairbanks. Our clients include local, state and tribal governments, school districts and universities, nonprofit organizations, and large corporations and small businesses.

Information Insights maintains an open office environment and a highly collaborative, non-hierarchical organizational structure. Information Insights has been recognized by the Fairbanks North Star Borough as a Family Friendly workplace.


Information Insights was founded in 1996 by Ellen Ganley and Brian Rogers. Started in Fairbanks, Alaska, where the firm is still headquartered, Information Insights was established to address the key community needs for evidence-based public policy, specifically public health research, and stakeholder and executive-level facilitation around difficult topics. As a research and management consulting firm with over 20 years of experience, Information Insights continues to deliver innovative, workable solutions and now does so in a wide variety of areas for public, nonprofit, tribal and corporate organizations.
