Tenia Davis, Vice President of Human Resources at Oprah Winfrey’s company, Harpo Productions, will be hosting a youth workshop for the Long Beach Poly Alumni Association, in association with the Office of Sixth District Councilman Dee Andrews and the All Class Reunion.
The workshop is at 1:00 pm, on Friday, July 23rd, at Martin Luther King Park, Community Center, located at 1950 Lemon Avenue. The topic of conversation will be on branding and identity strategies for High School students.
As Vice President of Human Resources at Oprah Winfrey’s company, Harpo Productions, Tenia Davis is focused on the company’s biggest asset, its workforce. Her mission is to attract, develop and retain outstanding talent for Harpo Productions, as well as to provide them with the knowledge and the work environment that enables all employees to contribute at optimum levels towards the success of all of Harpo’s business goals.
The topic of conversation will be on Branding and identity strategies of High School students. Teens are being transformed from passive consumers to active consumers and creators. “It is a wonderful thing when we have guidance, love and respect for our youth. It is workshops like this that give our youth a clear and precise direction towards their future”, said Councilman Andrews. “To provide the support they need to graduate from high school and move on to higher education, sometimes it is prosperous for them to learn about how to get there from someone that has already gone through the motions”, continued Andrews.
In the workshop, the students will first define, “Identity,” and consider who they are and what they value most in life, where they want to go and where they actually see themselves going. The students then will explore more in detail their answers and see how they have dealt with the issue if image and identity. As a culminating activity, students respond to the question, “who am I.”
