I would have embarrassed her and asked if she was confused because I created that content.

Moments like these are all about the sideways “toss under the bus”.

With all the other people present, I would have casually said “great to see us iterating on the XXX content I created. Can you quickly share the areas that you modified so that I can update the originals?”

I had this happen early in my career. Another team stole stuff I created, repurposed it and then published a Deloitte Review article (with their specific names attached) without crediting me. The partner I created the original content for talked to the other team’s partner about it. The dude at fault didn’t stick around Deloitte long after that. Shady fella.

I would just overlook it if it’s a big deal. I’ve had people take the credit or been attributed credit for work I mostly did, but it’s ok. If you do good work enough people will come to know it eventually. If it happens again, then you can kindly mention to her that you don’t appreciate it.

You’re a saint KPMG1, but you should get credit for your work. Also, allowing people to claim other’s work as their own is doing a disservice to your team (and company).

I would ask your manager how to handle that situation.

I didn't want to make things awkward on the call but I was just in a kind of wtf? moment. She literally copied and pasted my work into a new slide and claimed she made a few edits to it (which she didn't) on the call.

Does EY have a backup application that does versioning? If so, that's your proof. More than just stealing your work, that person is a liability to any team they're on. Hopefully management views it that way too.
