When I was first working, back in the early 70s, it was common for there
only to be only one woman professional in a meeting. (Hey, I remember
male-only, female-only job ads). My boss always made it really clear that,
not only did I not take minutes, I didn't get coffee either.

However, like coffee, minutes are a necessity. Good minutes are a Godsend.
Treat them as a professional opportunity.

Hint: When I'm going to a meeting that I know I need reliable info on, I
take a tape recorder.
I always scribble stuff down, because that's how I remember my key stuff.

Where I am now, the person who calls the meeting is responsible for any
follow-up reports, and we all get action item lists.
