Out at work day 1 – Dec 12 2011


It’s official.  I just survived the first round of “announcements” by senior management.  My colleagues have been great.  I had the assistance of a top notch communications and HR team.  We prepared a communication plan down to minute detail and the effort is paying off.  Our GLBT Alliance is very strong and was present to answer questions and concerns.

I couldn’t have picked a better company to start my journey in aligning my personal and professional life.

Thank you GE Healthcare!

I have redacted letters that were sent by both management and myself under the “Letters” menu item.

  1. It’s great that the company made it clear upfront that they will not tolerate gossip and inappropriate humor at your expense. I hope things continue to go well for you. Will you now be wearing suits and ties to work? I can’t imagine it (remember those Guatemalan drawstring pants we used to wear on weekends in Pacifica?!), but if you’ve decided to wear suits, I want to see pictures on this blog! 🙂

    • I’m sure I’ll still be the same old “fashion disaster” I’ve always been but, yes, there will be occasions where I’ll have to break down and wear a suit.

      I hope to do lots of pictures to document my transition so sooner or later, you will see me in a suit and tie. And kilt. 😉
