Moya was recognised in the arts, culture and sport category for her extensive contributions to campaigning for women’s rights, and this is her second time being listed on the 100 Women of Influence. In 2014, Moya was named in the global award category, which acknowledges women whose work has had an international impact.
Moya is a former Matildas vice-captain, MBA, and board member of Football Federation Australia (FFA), the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), and the International Council for the Arbitration of Sport (ICAS). She also served as one of only three women on the FIFA Executive Committee, chairing its Women’s Football Task Force and leading the #women in FIFA campaign for gender equality in football during the recent FIFA reform process.
Throughout her career, Moya has become known as an advocate for reform, integrity and gender equality, most recently, leading an internal and public lobbying in FIFA which led to the inclusion of gender inclusion measured in the FIFA statutory amendments and an improved environment for women in football.
In its fifth year, the 100 Women of Influence Awards celebrate outstanding women from a wide variety of sectors across Australia. Entrants into the awards were assessed by a panel of esteemed judges and have been recognised based on their outstanding ability to demonstrate vision, leadership, innovation and action in and beyond their fields.
