The DEL Board wants YOU to help us in a very important effort! To ensure our employee association’s name is inclusive of all DHS employees, both emerging and established, we want to change our name from DHS Emerging Leaders to something that welcomes employees of all grades, ages, and experience levels.
The board briefly chose the name, DHS Excellence in Leadership, to address our concern of inclusivity, but due to unforeseen complications, that name is no longer under consideration. This is where you come in.
We ask that you please provide us with at least one new name that you think is representative of what DEL means to you by COB Friday, June 9th. Simply reply to this email to submit your name(s). Once all names are received, we will share them with the DHS Office of the Chief Human Capital Officer for approval. We will then send the approved names to you as a poll and ask you to vote for your top choice. Those results will be shared with you once the new name is finalized.
All suggestions are welcome, as long as they are inclusive as described above. We encourage you to get creative and have fun throughout this process J Please keep in mind DEL’s mission areas when suggesting names, which are provided below as a reminder:
- Volunteering/Community Engagement
- Professional Development
Thank you for supporting this effort and for all you do as members of DEL.

Young Government Leaders (YGL) would like to invite you a to a FREE seminar on how to get concrete ideas, techniques and advice on how to refine your thinking, improve your approach to work, and manage yourself so you can achieve more and stay sane and optimistic in the process. YGL brings you Ms. Carmen Medina, one of the authors of the book “Rebels at Work”. Carmen Medina was a heretic at CIA. She believes ALL organizations would benefit from listening more to the ideas of their employees–the heretics, mavericks and rebels at work who care enough about their organization to speak up even when the safer path is to keep quiet. Free refreshments, a chance to win a signed copy of her book AND the chance to network and talk to Carmen right after the event.
