After a client call, which I drafted the talking points for, the male partner on the deal and a male senior associate went to grab lunch. I was tasked with dropping off the partner’s notebook on his desk. It may be that he and the associate had preexisting plans, but I was the only woman in the room/on the call. I can’t help but feel he wouldn’t have asked a male associate to do that, and would have instead invited him. I regret not inviting myself….How should I have handled this?

My gut says no unless it's a firm where I have a client relationship and I get lucky but hard to broach the subject given dynamics. Any advice?
