Say hello to Amber!

We are delighted to support ‘Seeing Eye Dogs Australia - a division of Vision Australia’ through sponsoring Amber, our virtual 'class pet'. Stay True welcomes students from all walks of life, supporting difference and diversity in both education and the workforce.


Our equity and diversity training is one of the aspects covered in our Business Workshops. Our workshops focus not only on public speaking, motivation and team building but also in strategies to help equip workplaces to deal with diversity and difference. Each workshop is designed specifically to provide participants with new and informed ways of thinking about their colleagues (with a specific focus on GLBTIQ, indigenous or disabled persons). The aim of our equity and diversity training is to promote a positive image around people with a difference in order to foster healthier and more functional workplace relationships. We believe our workshops assist in increasing workplace productivity and cohesiveness through understanding.
