When making decisions about transitioning at work, it is important to think of all the different steps that you would like to take in order to create a supportive and workable plan.

Some questions to consider while creating your timeline

At what point would I like to make this decision public?

Are there co-workers, clients, or other people who I would like to tell personally?

How would I like to announce my decision to transition?

Will I be undergoing any procedures that require me to take a leave of absence from work? When might I want to do this?

If you would like to move work locations, your manager must do their best to transfer you to a similar role within an appropriate distance. After moving locations, your privacy and confidentiality must be respected. It is your decision to discuss your transition, or identify, at the new location.
