Walk Together developed in multicultural environments over 15 years to emerge with three key pillars: a philosophy called Mutual Ways, a development pathway called the Strategic Action Framework, and a unique Two-Way Monitoring and Review tool. Trialling and adjusting the completed program overtime, made us realise the focus had to be on what each culture needed to learn about other cultures.
As our pillars were being formulated and used in and across cultures, we realised we needed to also understand leadership and facilitation so we didn’t get involved with decisions. Instead we learned from observing, the need to facilitate people to come up with their own joint solutions, and lead the change themselves. That meant we had developed the skills necessary to show people what's needed to develop culturally responsive systemic change.
