If they are your peers, and you’ve approached them already and they don’t seem interested, then peer pressure may not be the best strategy.

The best person to engage is the one that oversees all of these managers. Unfortunately, if some leaders aren’t told to support it, they won’t. This is why sponsorship from the top is SO important.
