Guidelines for DHS LeadUP Website

Guidelines for Posting Comments

We want the DHS LeadUP website to be a place not just for news, but for a conversation. We want to hear what you think about posted news, articles, and other content. We also hope to engage with you and others in leadership conversations.

To increase meaningful conversation, we are providing some guidelines to ensure that commenting is done in a respectful and professional manner.

We hope you’ll appreciate and stand by these guidelines. Our goal is to make the news blog a place for both information and feedback. What you say matters.
