Srini Srinivasan

LUMIUM Inc. (United States/India)

President-elect Nominee

I was part of Icsid/WDO for two terms, where we changed the objectives of WDO to make it a more outreaching organization.

Given my background of living in India and North America for long periods and building business relationships across the globe, I am fortunate to have a broader view of global issues and appreciation. Running a creative design company, LUMIUM in multi locations for 11 years have enabled me to help our clients solve social, cultural, and business challenges through industrial design.

If elected, I will work to increase global membership especially from Latin America, Africa and Asia, including India, where opportunities exist for promoting design in a big way. I will also strengthen our relationships in Europe and North America and grow more.

I will promote responsible design to help sustainable goals of the UN SDG. I will also encourage young designers to be more active in WDO through more direct communication and new programs aimed at youth in design. Another area I would improve is our partner program to expand corporate participation and generate more funds to allow WDO to come up with new programs to support its new initiatives. In earnest, I seek your support to get me elected to be the next President Elect. Thank you. looking forward to meeting all.
