It started a few months ago when I was told I had a conflict of interest and I was being taken off one of my biggest clients. That big client is my husband's company. This situation had not presented a problem in the past and I'm positive I could have represented my company's interests as I always had. It was not to be by the powers that be and the bad news was delivered as I traveled to a meeting at said husband's company. Through text message, the vice president told me to go back to my office. To say I was pissed is an understatement.
And today, just as another project (x) was getting really good, I was taken off. I was told by the CEO this time that I was not to communicate with the staff and all inquiries or contact by them should be referred to the CEO's office. And this was one hour before a meeting regarding project x started. Several people knew I was coming to that meeting; I called them this morning to tell them that.
After the meeting started, 2 people called me saying, "Where are you?" "I'm in my office." "Why?"
I played coy saying I was told not to go. Who told me not to go? I told them I didn't know. Lie.
It's nice to be remind in the 21st century that as a woman, you're not the "go to" person.
