The Employer's Guide to Gender Transition
by Dianna Cicotello

2001 (2nd printing), Transition Press
37 pages (soft)

This handbook has been created at the request of business leaders and upper-level management personnel of several corporations. It was designed to address the most common issues that arise when an employee makes a gender transition on the job.

This handbook has two major sections:

Section one, Overview, provides background information.

Section two, Expectations, provides insight into the issues and reactions that this transition are most likely to raise within your organization.


  • Just what is it that we are dealing with here? What is my employee trying to do?
  • Why is it necessary for them to change their gender?
  • Bur aren't men and women really the same, except for specific contribution to the reproductive process?
  • With all of the discoveries about how the sub-conscious mind functions, can't they be "de-programmed", and just change how they think?
  • There must be other influences, other reasons, as well . . .
  • Aren't these people just mentally ill?
  • Wouldn't more hormones cure this?
  • There must be some kind of cure for this . . .
  • I'm Christian, and I'm certain that proper prayer, or maybe a faith healer, cold fix this problem!
  • What about male role models? A strong male influence would provide a path to overcoming these desires, wouldn't it?
  • He doesn't seem effeminate . . .
  • I thought she seemed quite masculine . . .
  • Does this mean that they are homosexual?


  • What is Transition?
  • What is the ultimate goal of the transition process?
  • Why couldn't they just go somewhere else to do this?
  • Is there anything special my company can, or should, do to help this transition process?
  • How can we be assured that the individual is OK? How can we know if we are doing enough, or too much? How would we know if s/he is on track to a successful transition?
  • But (for the male-to-female) s/he still as so very male in so many respects. We just don't see any female personality traits at all!
  • But (for the female-to-male) he still looks and seems to act like a woman in so many respects. Where's the male?
  • He (She) is becoming a She (He), and that job is not usually done by a woman . . .
  • Wouldn't it be easier just to make the changes quickly and be done with it?
  • I'm not a bit comfortable with this gender transition!
  • It sometimes seems like the individual is really pushing this onto a lot of other people . . .
  • Why is he/she doing this to us/me?
  • It seems like they are trying to hide information from all of us. I would like to know more about what they are feeling, how they are doing.
  • For our business's planning purposes, when and what will the surgery consist of? What can we expect?
  • What are the most common problems we can expect to encounter?
  • How DO we deal with the restroom issue?
  • What other type of work disruptions can we anticipate?
  • Will this transition affect the performance of work teams?
  • Are the social issues, the working relationship issues, really that much of a potential problem?
  • Are the social issues different around a female transitioning to male?
  • All of this seems a bit too combative for the efficient operation of my office. I'm, not sure the individual is worth it . . .
