Inclusion riders, contractual clauses whereby actors or executives can demand diverse cast and crew members on a project, hit the headlines earlier this month (Mar18) after Best Actress victor Frances McDormand asked stars to adopt them in her acceptance speech at the Academy Awards.
Collaborator and childhood friend of Damon and Affleck Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni, who along with civil rights attorney Kalpana Kotagal and media researcher Stacy Smith coined the term, tweeted out the news. "On behalf of Pearl Street Films, Matt Damon, Ben Afflect, Jennifer Todd, Drew Vinton & I will be adopting the #InclusionRider for all of our projects moving forward". 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.

She concluded her speech saying, "Look around, ladies and gentlemen, because we all have stories to tell and projects we need financed". "Don't talk to us about it at the parties tonight".
