Well, it seems that one of the principles you are pushing is projects working harder to have easy entry. Why would anyone resist?
Perhaps because they don't feel it's right for their project (might be true, might not be).
Perhaps because they personally aren't good at dealing with newbies (in which case they need to recruit intermediaries first).
Or because it's framed as a women's issue and this puts them on the defensive. Does it work better when you promote it in a gender-neutral style?
