December 2021 - CONFERENCE!
Given the current situation in our country and world we must move from cultural competence toward a posture of cultural humility. As defined by Tervalon & Murray-Garcia (1998) Cultural Humility is the “ability to maintain an interpersonal stance that is other-oriented (or open to the other) in relation to aspects of cultural identity that are most important to the person.” Dr. Pérez will share what the difference is between cultural competency and cultural humility and provide strategies on how you as a leader can develop a posture of cultural humility so you can integrate into your work and professional life.
Dr. Joel Pérez is owner of Apoyo Coaching and a member of the International Coach Federation (ICF). He specializes in career transitions, career coaching, coaching professionals of color navigating predominantly White organizations, and professionals that want to develop their cultural humility. He has a certification in the MBTI, Qualified Administrator for the Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) and is a certified coach through the Academy of Creative Coaching. He also currently serves as an adjunct instructor for Brandman University in California in the Educational Doctorate in Organizational Leadership. He has over 20 years of experience in higher education, having served most recently as vice president and dean of students at Whittier College. He has previously served as the dean of students at Seattle Pacific University, and in a variety of roles that encompassed residence life, student activities, and student leadership at Pomona College and Chapman University. He also served as the chief diversity officer of George Fox University in Oregon.
Joel is currently serving as the Interim Executive Director of the Immigration Resource Center of San Gabriel Valley, which provides low-cost immigration legal services, educational events, and connection to local community resources. He also serves on the board of Degrees of Change, which prepares diverse, homegrown leaders to succeed in college.
Joel earned a B.S. in Business Administration from Biola University, an M. Ed. in College Student Affairs from Azusa Pacific University, and a Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration from Claremont Graduate University.

Talk, share, grow, and recharge at ATD Buffalo Niagara's monthly networking Coffee & Connections event.
This casual setting is a place to share best practices, explore ideas, develop and refine your work, and brainstorm solutions for challenges you're facing.
Building our talent development community one cup at a time!
This 2-part webinar series over two days will be based on the presenter’s ATD March 2017 published book, The Complete Guide to Building and Growing a Talent Development Firm and his subsequent monthly blog series for ATD’s Human Capital Community of Practice.
Dr. Cohen will give a high-level overview of all 12 steps needed to establish a sustainably profitable TD business. The 12 steps fall into three overall pillars: first Getting Grounded (1. Understand the Industry Dynamics, 2. Figure Out What You Want and Need, 3. Define Your Purpose, 4. Create a Business Plan and Structure, 5. Put Together a Strategic Plan, 6. Develop Your Offer); then Creating Momentum (7. Establish Your Operating System, 8. Market and Sell Your Offer, 9. Serve Your Customers); and finally Looking Ahead (10. Recognize Future Trends, 11. Establish Your Growth Plan, 12. Exit the Business).
Particular attention will be paid to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on successfully engaging and sustaining these steps. For each step, Dr. Cohen will not only pose a reflective question to assist more effective navigation during the pandemic, but offer several recommended actions for consideration.
At the end of the webcast, attendees will not only understand these 12 steps, but also have gained insight into how to:
Determine the business they want.
Set up their business for success.
Create a compelling offer.
Operate their business effectively.
Grow their business profitably.
Move forward with their next steps.
Navigate through the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ample time will be provided for questions both during and after the presentation. In preparation for the webinar, attendees should think about the extent to which they have practiced each step in their business, and be prepared to consider what changes they might need to make to combat the potential negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Targeted attendees are those who are either thinking of starting a talent development vendor business, or building and growing an existing one, whether a sole proprietorship or larger firm.
