Black panther” actor michael B. Jordan (31) wants to make diversity mandatory on film sets. His production company, outlier society, will apply an “inclusion rider” to all future film projects – a clause in contracts that can, for example, provide for the hiring of more women or members of minorities in front of and behind the camera. Jordan made the announcement on instagram.
He has worked with strong women and black artists throughout his career and sees this step as "supporting the women and men who started this fight".
Jordan was obviously referring to the oscar acceptance speech by actress frances mcdormand, who had spoken of the "inclusion rider" last sunday, a term that had initially left many guessing. The issue is a clause (inclusion rider) in contracts that states that more diversity can be demanded when filling roles or hiring employees for shoots. The idea is based on the idea that the occupation of the workplace should reflect the proportions in the population.
