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.

Meet Our Honorees
