Executive Director at The Peoples' Counselling Clinic
"I have worked with Angela Simmonds throughout her legal career. As a student she pioneered research into the land titles issue in Nova Scotia and helped ignite the work that is now ongoing to bring land justice to African Nova Scotians. As a member of the Nova Scotia legislature, she is a fierce and tireless advocate for all her constituents and is a vocal and effective member of the opposition. As an educator in the field of Equity and Anti-racism, Angela and I have co-presented on a number of occasions. She has an approach that is both engaging and challenging that leaves her students with plenty to think about and real tools to begin making strides towards more equitable and inclusive workplaces."

"I’ve had the good fortune of working collaboratively with Angela on a DEI initiative with a local N.S. company (approximately 1200 people) where she’s helped provide a tailored workshop and education. Throughout our work together, it’s clear that Angela draws on her impressive/extensive 20+ years of socio-economic development, education, entrepreneurship, policy, and cultural competency experience to achieve exceptional results in anything she tackles. Highly personable, Imaginative and analytical, Angela’s focus on building clear understandings of cultural competencies can easily help build more inclusive, harmless work environments in any organizational setting.

Doctors Nova Scotia
"I had the pleasure and opportunity to work with Angela at both NSBS and DoctorsNS. With her skills and expertise , our group at DBS undertook discussions on EDI in a respectful & collaborative manner Angela greatly helped us navigate through learning opportunities and crucial conversations Her skills and abilities were very helpful to our group."
"For the past 5 years Angela has provided me with valuable direction in my equity, diversity and inclusion journey. Her work in this area is driven by sharp intelligence and a passion to create communities of change. She is also not afraid to enter into hard conversations of privilege and how true equity is accomplished when we become allies in the work. Angela has been a guide in the journey but always very clear it is not her responsibility to teach us about diversity - instead it is our responsibility to take ownership of our own biases and work collectively for a better world for ourselves and future generations. Angela is a fantastic communicator and approaches the work with integrity and kindness. I highly recommend her for any organization who is committed to equity, diversity and inclusion and fundamental institutional change."
"Angela is a compelling and captivating speaker and facilitator.
She is bright, compassionate and understanding and can assist any organization in meeting its Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) goals. I recommend Angela for any event, conference, educational initiative where a First Voice perspective is needed. Angela adds great value to every conversation and I have seen her help people come to a much deeper understanding of EDI."
