The move came a week after actress Frances McDorrmand sparked interest and support for the term after she concluded her Oscars best actress acceptance speech by saying, "I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen: inclusion rider".
Cox DiGiovanni referred to Jordan in her announcement, saying, "Thank you for always supporting broader representation in the industry. On behalf of Pearl Street Films, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Todd, Drew Vinton and I will be adopting the #InclusionRider for all of our projects moving forward."
In the press room backstage at the 90th Academy Awards, McDormand explained an inclusion rider can be added to contracts so that at least 50 per cent of the cast and crew have to be diverse.
The topic of diversity and inclusion in Hollywood has gained momentum in recent months following the massive success of Ryan Coogler's "Black Panther," in which Jordan stars as the villain.
