I sit on the executive team of a larger organization. I happen to be the only female on roughly a team of 12. Up until a year ago when a new President started, I was very happy and had no complaints. Over the last year, I was blatantly told I had a lot of potential but would get nowhere due to being a single mom, I am in a lower pay grade than the rest of the team (which comes with a lower salary, lower bonus percent and less perks) and I am expected to do the same level of work (sometimes more). I am excluded from after hours team events, which is optically bad to the rest of my team members. I have raised my concerns to several individuals, including my boss, with no results.
I love the rest of my coworkers, but can feel myself getting bitter due to these factors. I don't necessarily want to leave my job as I love the work I do and the majority of the people I work with. I would love to have another woman to sit and discuss this with at work, but there are none to be found. Has anyone found a productive way to deal with this?
