Columbus, OH (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
CEO and Founder of Metcalf & Associates, Inc., will be featured panelist discussing Integral Organization Development & Management Consulting at the third biennial Integral Theory conference, the world's premier academic conference devoted to the field of Integral Theory and its application in both academic and professional contexts. The three-day conference from July 18 through July 21 will be held in San Francisco.
With more than 100 presenters, the theme of the conference is “Connecting the Integral Kosmopolitan.” Dictionaries define a cosmopolitan person as one who holds a view that is “worldwide rather than limited or provincial in scope or bearing.” The Integral Kosmopolitan has this expansive understanding of the integral field—one that sees “integral” as a broad and diverse tradition comprising multiple authors, lineages, and influences. The goal of ITC 2013 is to bring together Integral Kosmopolitans to connect and engage with one another, so that they may continue to promote integral as a burgeoning academic discipline. The conference will offer students of Integral Theory, graduate students, and practitioners access to the world's leaders in the field.
