Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Vow to Embrace the Inclusion Rider Clause

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have adopted inclusion riders
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are pledging to do their part to boost diversity in the entertainment industry.
On Monday, Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni-the head of strategic outreach at Pearl Street Films, Damon and Affleck's production company-tweeted at Jordan, saying that the company would be following in his footsteps and adopting the rider as well. The term reached wide public consciousness earlier this month at the 90th Academy Awards, when best-actress victor Frances McDormand noted it in her acceptance speech.
Following McDormand's lead, "Black Panther" star Michael B. Jordanannounced on March 7 that his company, Outlier Society Productions, would add inclusion riders on all future deals. An inclusion rider is a way for actors and actresses to guarantee projects they work on have a level of diversity, onscreen and off-camera, that matches the location setting of the project.
In her acceptance speech, McDormand honoured the other women who were nominated in various categories. But the concept, attributed to Stacy Smith, founder of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative at the University of Southern California, is that contracts stipulate movies feature actors that represent the demographics of their settings, and that crew members behind the scenes come from diverse backgrounds.
'We should support this for a billion reasons, but if you can't find a reason to, here's one: it will make movies better'.
"She has been a champion, advocate and co-creator of the rider and we're thrilled that Pearl Street Films is adopting and countering on screen and behind the camera bias with this tool".
