The Metaphor of Music
The Meaning of Diversity

"Finally, a diversity workshop that is intelligent and not angry. Amazing, eye opening, and unbelievably refreshing."


D-Village is a two-hour experiential program that incorporates the rich metaphors of the drum circle into a hands-on experience that challenges participants to examine life in a profoundly new way. Unlike programs that leave participants feeling uncomfortable, guilty, or blamed, our goal is to provide a powerful, enlivening, non-threatening approach to diversity training.

D-Village was developed by Christine Stevens in collaboration with diversity expert, Dr. Mark Benn and has been a featured workshop and all-conference event at NCORE - The National Conference on Race and Ethnicity in Higher Education for three years.

D-Village applications include:

  • Staff training
  • Experiential Diversity Programs
  • Keynote Presentations
  • Student Leadership Programs
  • Cultural Awareness Events
  • Resident Advisor Training

"We are now confident that our student leaders will be a valuable resource to Carleton's community thanks to the information, support, and unforgettable experience you provided."
-Luke Lara, Asst. Director of Multicultural Affairs, Carleton College

"Your program received rave reviews for its active, engaging and innovative techniques around the issues of diversity. It was the most highly rated session during the whole two weeks of training."
-Sarah Schutt, Director of Staff Training, University of Wisconsin
