The Why? Going on 25 years with Mediacom, Goldsmith helped complete numerous retrans deals during the past year. Previously a developmental aide for the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities, Goldsmith is a former NAMIC Luminary Award winner and newly appointed member of the organization’s board. He continues to champion DEI throughout the industry and at the workplace, where he mentors junior staff, interns and new hires.

He Says… “Without the right team in place, even companies with incredible resources can experience issues.”

What makes for a successful Employee Resource Group? Without the right team in place, even companies with incredible resources can experience issues. At Mediacom, we understand and embrace our employees are from diverse communities, where team members work together despite common interests, circumstances, or demographics. By putting dedicated resources towards continued education, social impact initiatives can be achieved while the interest of the company remains of going concern.

Coworkers describe me as… Authentic. I am a collection of my experiences. When things aren’t going according to plan, I believe the Lord’s grace is enough because power is made perfect in weakness and I acknowledge my weaknesses so the holy power can rest on me.

Who has kicked down a door for you? Italia Commisso. Italia has been extremely inspirational. She once told me, when a group of people with similar interest work together toward the same goal collaboration always beats competition or comparison.

Organization you’re proud to support? The National Association for Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC). As a newly appointed board member I am looking forward to supporting NAMIC empowerment and advocacy initiatives.
