KD2Change strives to protect all participants in formal research processes. Issues of confidentiality, anonymity, voluntary participation, consent and verification of quoted material are embraced as standards of both ethics and quality. As part of the contract process, we will discuss the specific characteristics of our partnership and agree, upfront, about how to address questions of voice, authorship, and ownership. We will be open to discussion of these topics anywhere along the inquiry process and will encourage candid communication for a constructive partnership.
