2022 GameChangers EP14: Dr Antoni Tsaputra
In this episode, you will meet Dr Antoni Tsaputra, GameChanger in the Alumni category of the Global Australian Awards 2022.
Dr Tsaputra is a champion of inclusion and accessibility for people living with a disability. Following extensive studies in Australia, Dr Tsaputra has combined his positions as a government official, academic researcher and disability activist to drive systemic change in the way government policy is developed to include and benefit those living with a disability. Having been a wheel-chair user his whole life and dependent on the assistance of a full-time carer, Dr Tsaputra has powerful insight into the implications of public policy decisions on accessibility of government services, spaces and places. This insight, combined with his academic knowledge developed during his PhD in Disability Inclusive Budgeting at UNSW, has made Dr Tsaputra a powerful agent of change in his home country of Indonesia, and a recognised leader in his field around the world.
Dr Tsaputra shares with us how his time studying in Australia completely changed the way he thought about disability. After seeing and experiencing advanced infrastructure and assistive technology in Australia, Dr Tsaputra’s work focused on breaking down barriers to real accessibility. Hear more about Dr Tsaputra’s inspiring advocacy work in this episode.
