Say Hey!®

November 16, 2021


Join us on Tuesday, November 16, 2021, for Say Hey!~Virtual, sponsored by Keen Sportswear with support from Oregon State University. REGISTER HERE.

In the meantime, if you know of a professional of color who moved to Oregon or southwest Washington in the past 18 months, please encourage them to sign up to be an Honoree at our November Say Hey! by completing the interest form (see purple button above).

We invite you to meet Say Hey! Honorees from August by reading their bios below and/or viewing this introduction video.


Say Hey! convenes business and community leaders to welcome professionals of color who recently relocated to Oregon and Southwest Washington. We help deepen their connection and engagement with our region's multicultural community. Everyone is welcome to attend this free program.


Are you a professional of color who relocated to Oregon or Southwest Washington within the last 18 months? Sign up to be a Say Hey! Honoree by clicking on the purple button above. Honorees get recognized during the program at Say Hey! You will also receive a special welcome bag of goodies and will be invited to unique gatherings designed to deepen connection.

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 contact Nydia Peña at
