The Greatest Nation Building Project on Earth
The National Disability Insurance Scheme launched by the Australian government in 2013, provided the long-awaited change in the services and supports delivered for people with disability, enabling them to have greater choice and control. This transformation, ‘The Greatest Nation Building Project on Earth’, presents enormous opportunities – providing significant job creation both for people with disabilities and the disability support workforce; stimulating digital innovation, creating new markets and the potential for new investment.
We talk to three leaders on why the disability sector and how schemes such as NDIS will be central for governments and businesses as we focus on economic recovery.

Marie Johnson, CEO, Centre for Digital Business.
