Won't Walk Past
The ‘Won’t Walk Past’ (WWP) initiative recognises that legislation and corporate processes including Athena Swan are not alone sufficient to create cultural change for equality, diversity and inclusion. These existing legal frameworks and employment conditions address the “big stuff” but fall very short of addressing day-to-day “little things” that can have a huge impact to an individual, team, and organisation.
The aim of the WWP initiative is to provide suggestions of how to respond to the “little things” that if addressed by the community can improve culture, from a grassroots level and beyond. Bringing attention to these occurrences is a way of increasing awareness and can prevent the events from being repeated or can alert the transgressor that type of behaviour is unacceptable. WWP provides a platform to empower individuals and groups.
