The Crucial Difference Between Information and Insights for Inclusion  

Do you know the difference between information and insights and what this means for your Inclusion journey?

Get your pen and paper ready because we’re talking a problem that members of our audience have distinguishing information from insights

This is the first in a two-part series on how we use information to make decisions about inclusion

In today’s show we discuss several things including:

  • A problem that members of our audience experience
  • Details of my low information diet
  • A 21st Century problem and much more

Here’s some of what we discuss on the show:

There’s a difference between information and insights

“information is easy to copy, insights are difficult to copy; some people present other people’s insights and present them as their own. Does that make it an insight or is it just information?”

Information is common, insights are rare

“I got a strong sense from people like you that there’s a lot of information out there talking about Diversity and Inclusion. But there was a lack of quality information and a lack of insight.”

Think about increasing your consumption of insights

“you’re being exposed to lots of information and you’ve got frustrations about getting to the good stuff and avoiding things that waste your time, Because simply put you can’t afford it, your time is too valuable”
