The Say Hey! event series honors professionals of color who have recently relocated to Oregon or Southwest Washington and helps them connect with our region's multicultural community. This quarterly event brings together business and public sector leaders, community organization representatives, and other individuals to help make Honorees feel welcome and more immersed in their new community. Everyone is welcome to attend Say Hey!


Are you a professional of color who relocated to Oregon or Southwest Washington no earlier than March 2016? Do you know, or have you recently hired someone who fits this description? Encourage them to sign up as an Honoree.


Do you attend Say Hey! on a regular basis? Are you interested in helping Honorees feel welcome from the moment they arrive at the venue?  If so, please sign up to be a Buddy.
