C Street, a strategic advisory firm helping CEOs meet the moment, today announced the appointment of Julianna Goldman to its Board of Advisors.
May 3, 2022
Julianna Goldman is an award-winning multimedia journalist who has covered some of the most historic news events around the world in her 15 years in TV and print news. She is also the founder of MamaDen, a platform that connects and empowers mothers, elevates the conversation around the work of caregiving at home and in the workplace, and provides resources for women looking to stay in or return to the workforce.
At MamaDen, Julianna hosts interviews with and provides access to leading parenting experts, as well as influential women in business, government, and media – all of whom are also moms – as a way of building community around their own expertise as well as the shared experience of motherhood.
Julianna was previously a Correspondent at CBS News, where she covered politics, the White House, and Congress. Earlier in her career, she was a White House correspondent for Bloomberg News and Bloomberg Television, where she co-moderated the news organization’s first Republican presidential primary debate; covered President Barack Obama's 2008 and 2012 campaigns, summit meetings around the world, and first trip to China; and conducted President Obama’s first one‐on‐one TV interview after his re‐election in 2012.
“Julianna has built an incredible platform for working mothers at a critical moment, when the Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated systemic issues and driven women to drop out of the workforce at record rates,” said C Street Founder and CEO Jon Henes. “We could not be more fortunate to have Julianna join our Board as we advise companies on fostering inclusive cultures.”
Earlier this month, Julianna joined Jon as a featured guest on “Word on the C Street,” a podcast where influential leaders reflect on the value of diversity, equity, and inclusion and share their perspectives on the defining challenges and opportunities of our time. On her episode, Julianna discusses how the overwhelming response to her article for The Atlantic on the motherhood penalty in TV news led her to found MamaDen; how hybrid work presents both opportunities and challenges for working mothers; and her views on the important role men can play in helping to change workplace culture, from serving as sponsors to helping normalize parental leave.
Julianna is a member of the Board of Trustees at Imagination Stage, a non-profit children’s theatre in Bethesda, Maryland. She also serves on the Leadership Council for the Athena Center for Leadership at Barnard College/Columbia University, from which she graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in Political Science.
