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 were introduced at the February 2023 Say Hey! event at Hidden Creek Community Center in Hillsboro. Please join us in welcoming them to our community.

Meet the November 2022 Say Hey! Honorees in this special introduction video.
