“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)
“Nunc id nunc fringilla, cursus velit quis, bibendum urna. Praesent luctus enim vel molestie eleifend. Nulla luctus mauris id turpis placerat, vitae pulvinar justo aliquet. “Sarah Smith
“Praesent lacinia risus ipsum, sed gravida velit lacinia ut. Pellentesque orci lacus, egestas sed pellentesque nec, blandit nec enim. Morbi fringilla nisi dolor, et accumsan sem dapibus nec.”Kelly Jordan
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
“New Relationship Trust (NRT) hired Chastity Davis in 2015 to assist us in our 10 regional engagement sessions around the province; Ms. Davis was responsible for assisting in the setup of the 10 regional meetings, performing logistics and acting as moderator/facilitator. We found Chastity Davis Consulting to be very professional and executed the duties efficiently and with respect. NRT has no problem recommending Chastity Davis Consulting for a BC Aboriginal Business Achievement Award! A very worthy candidate for this award and recognition”.Cliff Fregin, Chief Executive Officer, New Relationship Trust
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
