Managing Partner Bowman explains for Harvard Business Review,
"How to Get Yourself Invited to Important Meetings.
" Step 1) Assess your value - how will you advance the goal of the meeting?; 2) Assess your style - perhaps your behavior left you on the outside looking in; and, 3) Use the right strategy for the situation (does your boss go in your place? is a peer intentionally excluding you? are you on the organizer's radar screen?) "In any of these situations, it may be that you weren’t left out of the meeting intentionally. Making clear that you’re interested in attending and explaining what value you can bring can often remedy an oversight. When you’re not invited to a meeting, it’s easy to point the finger and blame others for leaving you out, but that typically won’t get you the invitation. Ultimately the responsibility is yours to prove why you should be in the room." (link
