Michael B. Jordan Adopts an Inclusion Rider for His Company

Matt Damon, Ben Affleck will support inclusion rider in future deals

"For those of you asking about the #InclusionRider, it's created to ensure equitable hiring in supportive roles for women, POC, the LGBT community, & people w/disabilities", the tweet said.

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are pledging to do their part to boost diversity in the entertainment industry.

The heightened interest in inclusion also follows the #MeToo movement, Time's Up initiative and the success of films with diverse casts and crews, such as "Get Out" and "Black Panther".

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck have revealed that they will support Inclusion Riders in all future projects.

Chiefs to sign WR Watkins, LB Hitchens
Sammy Watkins and the Chiefs have agreed to terms on a contract that should be signed tomorrow, according to multiple reports . The former Los Angeles Ram plans to sign a three-year deal worth $48 million with $30 million guaranteed, sources said.

Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni, Pearl Street Films' head of strategic outreach, confirmed that it would use inclusion riders and praised Michael B. Jordan, who announced last week that his own production company would now adopt the policy. "On behalf of Pearl Street Films, Matt Damon, @BenAffleck, Jennifer Todd, Drew Vinton & I will be adopting the #InclusionRider for all of our projects moving forward", she tweeted.

The announcement comes a week after McDormand's Best Actress acceptance speech at the Academy Awards, where she first brought up the clause.

DiGiovanni did not announce specifics on what the riders will entail.

The Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri star also took the chance to shine a light on the little-known term, inclusion rider. McDormand said. "Because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed". "Don't talk to us about it at the parties tonight". Frances McDormand used her Best Actress Oscar win to encourage Hollywood to use "inclusion riders" in their contracts, which would require any production to interview a broad spectrum of diverse people for supporting roles and key jobs on set.
