WHO WAS INVOLVED?

My PhD tutor.

WHAT HAPPENED?

She presented my work without my consent at an international conference, didn’t list my name as part of the team, and placed my colleague’s picture under the name of project.

HOW DID YOU FEEL AT THE TIME?

Helpless and betrayed.

WHAT, IF ANYTHING, DID YOU DO TO TRY TO RESOLVE IT?

I emailed her and asked for a meeting. In the meeting I explained my dissatisfaction.

WHO, IF ANYONE, DID YOU GO TO FOR HELP? (INTERNAL OR EXTERNAL TO YOUR ORGANISATION)

I spoke to few friends outside my team.

WHAT WAS THE RESPONSE TO THIS?

She agreed and said it was a mistake but our relationship hasn’t been the same. I spoke up for myself even if she didn’t like it.

HOW LONG AGO DID THIS HAPPEN?

1 year ago.

Ignored and alone.
