Going beyond policy: An Interview with Tynan Jarrett


Tynan Jarrett of the Social Equity and Diversity Education Office at McGill University talks about the importance of having political will, an implementation plan and support for policies so that they are able to be effective.  This is especially important to think through in terms of Anti-Oppression work in community organizations- as we have heard many time throughout this project- it is great to develop policies around these issues- but creating a culture of actively working against oppressive structures is equally important.

    What a nuanced perspective – love that policies can only be useful with support and real intentionality behind getting them into practice. It makes me think about HOW we develop policies, as we often do so without asking the question “who is going to ensure this happens”? and “how are we going to practically follow through with this”?
