Changing the research to satisfy stakeholder whims and then ignoring it in the analysis is bad practice and introduces all sorts of biases. The questions you ask change the answers you receive.
I think every researcher has had to do this at some point! I remember one study at my first agency where the moderator had to take up a quick collection around the office because of some miscommunication.
We’ve been running a workshop on overcoming barriers created by workplace gender bias, and one of the biggest issues we’ve found is invisible work. The same sort of emotional labor, social organizing, or project management tasks you mention fall to women without question in the workplace and it decreases women’s ability to do the tasks that are explicitly part of the job description.
