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

“I have had the pleasure to come to know Ms. Chastity Davis in her role on Minerva BC’s Board of Directors. Chastity has been a valued member of our board for six years and an integral member of our Combining Our Strength Council. Chastity has led meaningful dialogue throughout our organization and programming focused on Truth and Reconciliation. Her perspective, power and presence in our board meetings has helped shape Minerva’s strategic direction towards Reconciliation and greatly influenced our strategic planning process. Chastity has challenged our perspectives in a way that continues to make us all better people. She has an innate ability to make everyone around her feel and understand on a much deeper level in which we started out.
Chastity is the epitome of a heart-centered leader. It was the reason why I recommended her as a speaker at the WNORTH Conference in Whistler in Spring 2017 where she addressed 200 delegates and challenged a senior level of influential business leaders to embrace the human connection in business, guiding so many to re-humanize their organizations and the way in which they lead. Watching Chastity speak with such confidence, power and passion led me to plan an event around her as the keynote speaker in the fall of 2017 at the Terminal City Club where she will speak to CEOs and senior executives on how integrating Indigenous ways of knowing and being will guide our organizations to a position of strength and purpose. Chastity is quite simply a force and Minerva is forever grateful for the hundreds of hours of volunteerism she has dedicated to our programming for women in leadership.”Jen Murtagh, Chief Executive Officer, The Minerva Foundation
“Chastity spoke for me at the WNORTH Conference – A Global Gathering of Women on the Rise, held in Whistler, BC in April. She was a calming and spiritual breath of air to a room with over 170 women leaders. Her presence and knowledge of introducing the women to her heritage and spiritual approach were enlightening. She was able to connect with all the attendees and encourage them to approach their daily lives in a more connected way to the places where we live and where we come from. After her presentation, the women of the room felt more connected with themselves and the women around them as well as the earth we all live on. WNORTH was grateful for her attendance and knowledge she was able to share with all.”Heather Odendaal, President, Bluebird Strategy
