Ben Affleck And Matt Damon Production Company Adopts Inclusion Rider

13 March 2018

It turned out that it's a stipulation stars can demand in their contracts to require certain levels of gender and racial diversity on and off camera.

Pearl Street Films, the production company co-founded by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, will adopt inclusion riders for their projects going forward, following in the footsteps of Outlier Society, the production company started by Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan. 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.

"@michaelb4jordan Thank you for always supporting broader representation in the industry". 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.
