Thank you for asking, but I am wondering why you chose to ask this anonymously... As a black leader of a company that has a diverse staff I have actually found it difficult to speak openly with the folks we work with and have only half-heartedly spoken about how difficult the last week has been to process. Partly because as a person of color, your judgement and ability to competently function is being judged and you're held to a higher standard because you're an anomaly. Partly because of my not wanting to look too vulnerable, even though I am the first to admit my faults to my staff to encourage transparency. The subject has been broached lightly by myself with employees, but in private is where I feel more able to process and share. I'll add to your question: Are there any founders of color and how do you navigate among a diverse staff?
