Say Hey!®

Summer 2020



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 in the last 18 months? Sign up to be a Say Hey! Honoree by clicking on the purple button above. Please note that due to the COVID-19 health crisis, the May and August Say Hey! gatherings have been cancelled. Though we can’t meet in person, we still want to provide Say Hey! Honorees a chance to introduce yourself to our online community through a short video message that will be posted on social media. After you complete the honoree interest form, you will be contacted with further information about the online video introductions.

If you know a professional of color who moved to our area in the last 18 months, please encourage them to sign up to be a Say Hey! Honoree and provide them with a link to this page.

For questions, please feel free to email


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 from at least 5:00 - 6:30 pm. You'll sign up via online registration when that goes live.
