I would ping and ask for more context. I did that once and the partner immediately realized that what they did was anxiety provoking and assured me it was good news.

Is HR on the call too or is it a one on one?

Not always. You can bcc on invites too. I do it when I send out my PTO invites.

Just ask the Partner what’s the headline. I believe any meeting scheduler owes at least either an agenda or an objective to their attendees.

Partner: Silence
