More than a third of Americans in a new national survey said they think the heightened focus on diversity at work has overlooked white men, according to the consultancy firm Ernst & Young. Thirty-two percent of male respondents, meanwhile, reported feeling “personally excluded” in the office. Employment data, however, show men continue to dominate the top ranks of virtually every field, including business, politics and academia. Karyn Twaronite, EY’s global diversity and inclusiveness officer, said the company wanted to better understand why some male workers said they did not feel engaged in efforts to boost employees who have been historically underrepresented in higher roles. “It’s a fair point that most of these efforts have drawn more airtime to women and …
