Apply now to be a May Honoree!

Honorees are professionals of color who moved to Oregon or southwest Washington within the past 18 months. They get introduced to the community each quarter at Say Hey!, the region’s largest multi-cultural networking event.

See profiles of the Honorees that were introduced at our February Say Hey! event at Oregon State University.
