That's all very well but you can be sure that those Haredim won't change their views and opinions and so on for any more 'enlightened' or 'progressive'. So this 'listening to the Haredim' is all a one way street isn't it? And I woild imagine that as as G-D person you woiuld sympathise with that. Whether they are Jewish Haredim in TA, or Plymouith Bretheren or Amish folk in NY or LA, let them live seperately from others. Then if others want to go join them fine. But chalk and cheese simply are not the same, and oil and water don't mix. Others may join them, but they won't join others...
