Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's production company to adopt inclusion riders

An inclusion rider, we've since learned, is a legal addition to a contract that doesn't change the intention of the contract other than to alter it to demand at least 50% diversity in gender and racial representation, on-and-off screen.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck will be adopting an inclusion rider in all future projects, the head of strategic outreach for their Pearl Street Films production company announced on Twitter Monday.

The whole thing was thrown into the spotlight by Frances McDormand during his Oscar speech, and already Brie Larson and Michael B. Jordan have agreed to take on the clause in all future films.

Sukma attack reflects 'flawed policies', says Rahul Gandhi
In the a year ago , Naxals killed 25 CRPF jawans. 12 jawans of the CRPF were killed in the same district in March past year . Earlier on the day, Maoists had staged a similar attack but they fled after the CRPF personnel retaliated the fire.

Jordan had previously confirmed the news on Instagram: '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.

"We all have stories to tell and we need finance. I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: "inclusion rider". "Don't talk to us about it at the parties... invite us into your office in a couple of days or you can come to ours, whichever suits you best, and we'll tell you all about them", she announced. While the concept of inclusion riders has been around since 2014, it didn't start to get widespread attention until McDormand's Oscar acceptance speech-and even McDormand said that she only found out what inclusion riders were a week before winning her Oscar.

The Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, who created the movement, said that Cox DiGiovanni had been a "champion, advocate and co-creator" of the inclusion rider since February 2016.
