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.

Below are the Honorees that we introduced at our August 2023 Say Hey! event at the East Portland Community Center on August 29th. Please join us in welcoming them to our community.
