Hi Mary! Thanks for reading! As far as the image goes, it’s a shot from the film “The Help”. The woman depicted is a maid who works for a family during the early 1960s. She does not have much (any?) formal education, but her intelligence is intact.
The scene being depicted is meant to illustrate the nurturing and supporting relationship between the young lady and the maid. The maid is trying to instill a sense of self-confidence in the young lady. So that she can grow up to be a healthily functioning member of society.
The point me using the image was to pass along some of those themes to my audience (junior engineers). I want them to understand that being junior doesn’t make you unimportant to an organization. Everyone has an important role to play!
Hope that helps! Thanks again!
