“I have known Chastity Davis since 2012 through her role as Chair of the Minister’s Advisory Council on Aboriginal Women. In that capacity, Chastity demonstrates an unwavering commitment to improving the quality of life for Aboriginal women in B.C. Chastity is a strong advocate who builds relationships, encourages dialogue, and seeks impact within government. Chastity’s efforts are strategic in their influence yet sincere in their origin, which makes her advice to government so valued and well-respected.”Laurel Nash, Assistant Deputy Minister, Ministry of Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation
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
“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 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
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.
