The news comes from Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni, Head of Strategic Outreach at their joint production company Pearl Street Films. 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.
Jordan announced last week that he would add an inclusion rider on all projects produced under his Outlier Society Productions banner.More news: Fitbit Launches Fitness Tracker for Kids

An inclusion rider is a contract provision that compels producers to try to hire minorities, women and LGBTQ personnel in order to promote diversity.
"I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: inclusion rider", she said.
Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni made the announcement Monday night via Twitter at the South by Southwest Film Festival.
Black Panther actor Michael B Jordan was one of the first few celebrities to announce that he supports inclusion riders after McDormand's historic speech. It requires cast and crew on a film to meet a certain level of diversity, and is a solid commitment to increasing representation of women and minorities in the industry. She's also on the board of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, the think tank housed at the University of Southern California that was, conveniently, founded by Dr. Stacy L. Smith, the co-originator of the official inclusion rider.
