I'm hoping someone might have actionable advice for me on this issue. I (F, mid 30s) lead a team in a completely male dominated industry and sub section and have for the past 4 years. I've been in this department for 8 years, and in a company with 30+ global offices remain the only woman on the global team (I say this only to point out - I know my department and I know what I'm talking about with regards to my subject matter). Recently, our company purchased a major competitor and merged offices. Since then, I've been consistently talked over in every internal and external meeting we have had between offices and with customers. I have tried to politely wait, assuming they did not realize what they were doing - didn't help. I have tried to nicely point this out internally one on one - made no difference. I'm at a loss on how to proceed with addressing this in a professional way.
Many thanks for your time,
