Find a project or other proposal.

I have the same issue, they just used me to take meeting minutes and never asked about my personal growth or preference . I emailed the mgr to discuss about possibility of moving forward or changing a role, and he just removed me from the meeting list....mission accomplished no matter how it is achieved.

Don't be a wimp and confront them about it. I did this several years ago with a Principal. I set up 1:1 time and asked if they genuinely valued my personal development because it didn't look that way.

Find something that needs a specific skillset you have. Good excuse to move on.

I provided evidence of lack of support at a year end that just ended in spite of great effort (and value) and asked questions about whether they just wanted my labor or really supported me. Partner admitted it and said they didn't understand my contribution relative to other folks. I stopped supporting that day, it was clear what I owned. It's cordial now, but I avoid working with them
