“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 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
“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
“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.
