In 2017, while researching a book on organization development in indigenous communities, I was introduced to Chastity. I was immediately struck by what a mature, thoughtful and grounded 30-something she is. I then asked her to co-teach the introductory leadership course in SFU’s Executive MBA in Indigenous Leadership with me. She was a fantastic collaborator and brought tremendous resources and experience to the course. I would hesitate to teach it again without her. Her range of experiences, compassion, and ability to be a non-anxious presence make her an invaluable ally in bridging worlds.Gervase R. Bushe, Professor of Leadership and Organization Development, Beedie School of Business, SFU
“Chastity Davis is truly an inspirational leader who brings an incredible depth of knowledge and understanding, a unique perspective as a mixed heritage woman, and a sound business lens to her every endeavor. I believe Chastity’s successful consulting business is as a result of her ability to bring tremendous value to her clients while establishing authentic and deep relationships. Chastity’s involvement with BCLC has been transformative, deepening our organization’s understanding of indigenous history and has created an immense appetite among our people to learn more about how they can be part of reconciliation. On a personal note, after meeting Chastity and hearing her speak about her passion for bridging the understanding between indigenous and non-indigenous people, I was compelled to work with her and take action in my own organization to help share her message. This is, in my view, the mark of a remarkable leader. Someone who can inspire others to think differently and motivate them to act and be part of something important.”Susan Dolinski, Vice President Social Responsibility & Communications, BC Lottery Corporation
“I am profoundly grateful for Chastity Davis’s friendship. In the few years I have known Chastity, she has enabled me to gain a sensitivity and depth of understanding of Canadian indigenous peoples, history and culture, and my own white privilege, that I did not have prior to our conversations. Through a session that Chastity conducted with Gabriola Island artistic and community leaders, she showed the group, all settler women, in a nonjudgmental and sensitive manner, how to better understand, honour and respect indigenous customs and protocols. I know everyone left with a greater commitment and clarity to move forward in our community with reconciliation initiatives.
I believe Chastity Davis is a visionary, an open-hearted and gifted teacher and leader. British Columbia and Canada are fortunate to have a woman with such deep commitment to reconciliation between indigenous and nonindigenous peoples.”Lynda A. Archer, Ph.D. MFA, Author: Tears in the Grass, Lambda Literary Award Finalist, Clinical Psychologist (Retired)
Chastity Davis and I first met when we served together on the Ministry Advisory Council on Aboriginal Women.
During that time, we nominated her as Chair. She works tirelessly to improve the lives of Indigenous women and address the social and economic challenges that expose Indigenous women to violence. I am pleased she continues to support this valuable work.
For the past eight years, Chastity’s services as a facilitator bring her unique talent and skills to support my Association to achieve our strategic plan; to help us create our strategic direction towards Reconciliation, and her continued work to support the National Strategy for the Indigenous Courtworker program across Canada.
Chastity Davis is a compassionate leader who shows a high level of integrity in her work. She has earned the trust and support of everyone she works to support.Darlene Shackelly, Executive Director, Native Courtworker and Counselling Association of British Columbia
