“Mari’s mural will hopefully leave a positive legacy for girls and women in the community and also start a wider conversation across the globe,” said Kat Czekaj, Senior Specialist, Technology Partnerships, McLaren Racing. “We hope it inspires those who see it to be whoever they want to be.”
Added Lucy Holmes, Manager, Partnerships, McLaren Racing: “It was great to see the mural in person. It represents gender equality and the fact that there should be no barriers to participating in the world of motorsport, or in other careers which are not typically gender diverse.”
Another very special group of visitors – who also helped with the mural – came from our local Women in Color program. The vocational course is dedicated to empowering women to build careers in the decorative paints and vehicle refinishes industries, with 14 participants having already graduated.
