transitioning at work
I contacted the Diversity person in our uni's HR dept to ask if there's any support/policies/precedents for people coming out as trans.
Long story short: no. I'd be the first ever, and I'd have to handle it directly with my Head of Department.
This essentially means I'd be taking the full responsibility upon myself, and they've recently committed themselves to Free Speech as a key value, and mention Diversity but only gender equality as a goal.
Living and working in two different countries has its perks: the exchange rate really helps me afford a better life.
I pay for that around this time of the year when I need to declare taxes twice and the offices consider me an edge case.
This message brought to you by my second day on the phone trying to figure out what to declare to whom so I don't have to double-pay taxes.
