But according to the White Men’s Leadership Study, a study of white men and DEI, nearly 70% report feeling “forgotten” by diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. Feeling uncertain about whether DEI includes them is the main reason they say they either disengage or are not as committed to it as others in their organization.
