Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are the latest Hollywood power-players to embrace inclusion riders, the diversity-promoting clauses recently thrust into the national spotlight by actress Frances McDormand, who championed them in her Academy Awards acceptance speech earlier this month.
An inclusion rider is the idea that people who have negotiating power in the film industry, such as A-list actors, directors, and producers, insist on language in their contracts demanding diversity in both on-screen and behind-the-camera positions. The announcement was made on Twitter Monday.
The news was announced on Twitter by the company's head of strategic outreach Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni in response to a tweet from Michael B. Jordan in which he announced his own production company would be adopting the rider.

The clause, which can be added to actors' contracts at their request, has been around since 2016 and was co-created by University of Southern California communications professor Dr. Stacy Smith, civil rights and employment practice attorney Kalpana Kotagal as well as Cox DiGiovanni.
"Thank you for always supporting broader representation in the industry."Specifics of the rider are also undisclosed at this time.
