In our HELP! SITUATION SPOTLIGHT™ series, we shine the light on challenges that community members have shared with me. This episode is, “I Feel Invisible.”

Consider:
“Employment Law Study Shows Brits Feel Invisible at Work - Brits feel invisible in the workplace at the age of 54, a new study has revealed.” (http://www.slatergordon.co.uk/media-centre/press-releases/2014/02/employment-law-study-reveals-brits-feel-invisible-in-the-workplace/)

“[T]he social phenomenon known as "invisible women's syndrome": a condition generally understood to affect women aged from about 45 to 59 – or 2.2 million Australians.” (http://www.smh.com.au/lifestyle/life/the-mysterious-case-of-the-disappearing-women--20130119-2czy8.html) 

“Are African-American Men ‘Invisible?' Cut dead is a 19th century term used by William James, which means to be snubbed completely or deliberately ignored. Unfortunately, there are so many African-American young men who feel invisible, who feel as if they are literally cut dead, but they're living.” (http://www.npr.org/2013/07/23/204837414/are-african-american-men-invisible) 

“Being Invisible Can Help Your Career - When you are invisible, coworkers may not understand what you do, and you may fit the description of Shane Battier: helping your team in all kinds of “subtle, hard-to-measure ways.” What we can’t see is often more powerful than what we can — just ask anyone in Washington.” (http://blogs.hbr.org/2012/06/being-invisible-can-help-your/)

You’re not the only one who feels invisible. Now what?
