Blazing a Trail in Black and Silver: Qiava Martinez, Vice President, Premium Services & Guest Experience, Las Vegas Raiders (NFL)
She has become a role model for many others in sports, rising to a Vice President position through grit, dedication and heart. Sports was always in her blood, but Qiava Martinez didn’t initially move into the business after college. Even though her father played pro football and several of her brothers were in the industry, she had several passionate pursuits before a job fair in Sacramento led her to an amazing career with the Raiders of 14 years and counting. In this candid, transparent interview, Qiava details the challenges of moving with the team from Oakland to Las Vegas and dealing with the trials of the pandemic. She also reveals how she went from activist to acting on purpose, from starting her own difference-making youth magazine to lighting the way by example as a woman executive of color in the sports industry. A "can't-miss" episode!
