The "inclusion rider" was first mentioned and brought to light by Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri's lead actor Frances McDormand as she delivered her impassioned Oscar-winning speech at the 90th Academy Awards on 4 March which left a deep impact and made the phrase trend for days on end.

Now, Black Panther actor Michael B Jordan has promised to include an inclusion rider in all the forthcoming projects that are made by his production company Outlier Society. The Creed star took to Instagram to make the announcement.

“In support of the women & men who are leading this fight, I will be adopting the Inclusion Rider for all projects produced by my company Outlier Society. I’ve been privileged to work with powerful woman & persons of color throughout my career & it’s Outlier’s mission to continue to create for talented individuals going forward," read the post.

Jordan is the first big name of Hollywood that has publicly announced that he will be implementing the inclusion rider in his work since McDormand's speech.

An inclusion rider is a clause in an actor's contract that demands 50% diversity on the sets of their films. The makers of the film are then bound to honour the clause.

"The whole idea of women not trending, African Americans not trending; it changes now and the inclusion rider has something to do with that,” McDormand had said in the press room backstage at the Oscars, according to a Variety report.
