My Story

Moya McAlister, a full-time marketing professional, not-for-profit management consultant, and advocate for social change and transformation currently works as the Communications Manager for the National Self-Represented Litigants Project (NSRLP); a charitable organization that advocates for a better and deeper understanding of the needs, motivations, and challenges of self-represented litigants in Canada.

Moya was born in Toronto, Ontario to Trinidadian immigrant parents. She played the steelpan for many years honouring her Caribbean roots.

Moya’s musical background and passion for the arts are what drove her to volunteer with Arts Collective Theatre (ACT), a not-for-profit organization dedicated and committed to enhancing the well-being of the community through theatre education, mentorship, and bringing awareness to social justice issues in Windsor-Essex. As the Vice President of ACT, Moya received the 2020 Mayor’s Award for Arts Administration.

This year Moya joined the Artcite Programming Committee which has the exciting job of reviewing local artist submissions, from all walks of life and selecting which artist will be given the opportunity to exhibit their work in the Artcite Inc. Gallery for all to see.

In 2018, Moya joined seven influential women from the Windsor-Essex County region on stage at the “YQG Talks: Women with Drive” event. Guests listened to incredible women who were driven, ambitious and impactful in the Windsor Community. Since then, she has continued to be a public speaker, touching on the importance of building more diversity and inclusion within Windsor’s Arts Community. She has given talks on personal branding techniques, and tips on finding viable, sustainable strategies for a variety of local non-profits and charities to amplify their organization’s social impact.

Moya is also a member of a team of four dynamic women called “Real Women, Direct Talk” who facilitate anti-racism workshops to businesses and organizations in the Windsor-Essex Region using fresh and innovative approaches to support people in becoming agents of change.
