GK Consulting prides itself in strict adherence to ethical research with human subjects, as prescribed by the American Sociological Foundation (ASA) in addition to specific country-level guidelines set by the client. Social research that has the potential to negatively impact even one person must be re-thought.

“GK Consulting led us at Plan UK through a large and complex baseline study at the start of a girls’ education project. The fund manager and evaluation manager on the donor’s side were extremely specific about what they wanted versus what Plan UK was planning and Gwen and her team managed this impeccably... The result was a high quality piece of work and one of the best baselines we have had at Plan UK.
“We had a positive experience working with you on the Liberia project, and I was impressed by your commitment to quality research (in particular, your thoroughness and attention to detail came through things like diligently tracing the origin of campaign t-shirts or climbing a tree to check a radio signal) and in a project like that, a willingness to work collaboratively and take on board suggestions/feedback was key”
“You have brought together a lot of wonderful material, and I think this will be really valuable reading for many working on gender and more general development issues in Liberia. You have done a strong job of analyzing the data and drawing conclusions in many places… you do such a lucid but extremely rich job of presenting the findings.”
