In 2005, major employers in Oregon & Southwest Washington joined forces as "Partners in Diversity" (PiD) to cooperatively support diversity in the workplace and community. The Say Hey! event series was created to honor new minority professionals relocating to the Oregon and SW Washington area with the goal of helping them connect with the multicultural community.
Say Hey! events are held quarterly. At each Say Hey! PiD recognizes Honorees of color who have recently moved to Oregon and SW Washington. Community leaders, corporate and public sector leaders, community organizations and other individuals attend Say Hey! to help make honorees feel welcome and more connected to their new community. Everyone is welcome to attend Say Hey! This multicultural event provides a great opportunity to enjoy an evening of meeting new friends and learning about what makes our community a great place to live and work.
Partners in Diversity is accepting Say Hey! host requests. Is your company interested in hosting or co-hosting a Say Hey? Send Mari Watanabe
