Walmart funds innovators’ community workshop

The PNW Society of Innovators is using a Walmart Foundation grant to organize a free workshop in collaboration with the Greater Portage Chamber of Commerce. The free workshop, called Rise, Shine and Share Portage, is designed to help attendees embrace innovation.

“It will be a rapid-fire but fun session designed to get everyone working together to build and test their designs with an emphasis on radical collaboration,” said Sheila Matias, the society’s executive director. “Participants will learn some new secrets about teamwork and walk away equipped to facilitate collaboration-building exercises within their own organizations.”

The meeting will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. on March 12 at the chamber headquarters, 6100 Southport Road, Portage. Register online at:
