About Say Hey!
Say Hey! is an evening of community building. Its main purpose is to welcome professionals of color who recently relocated to Oregon or southwest Washington (aka Honorees) and help them get connected with our diverse communities. The program features an introduction of Honorees, food, networking and prizes.
Partners in Diversity’s goal is to create an environment that is safe for all. Say Hey! is free and open to professionals of color and allies.
Become an Honoree — If you know of a professional of color who moved to Oregon/SW Washington in the past 18 months, invite them to be introduced at Say Hey! Deadline to sign up as an Honoree for this quarter’s Say Hey! is August 4, 2023.
Buddies and Volunteers Needed — Do you find it meaningful to make others feel welcomed and valued? If you attended Say Hey! before, please consider being a Buddy to our Honorees. This means being a friend to our honored guests and making sure they are comfortable and connected. If you’re interested in being a Say Hey! Buddy, please complete this online interest form.
Promotion Opportunity — To help make Honorees feel welcome and more connected to this region’s multicultural community, we provide Honorees with gift cards and passes to businesses and attractions, encouraging them to spend their time and money locally.
