Ever since she mentioned the two words - Inclusion Rider - things appear to be changing with several stars coming forward in support of it.
Jordan announced last week that he would add an inclusion rider on all projects produced under his Outlier Society Productions banner.
Fanshen Cox DiGiovani, the head of strategic outreach for the company, announced on Twitter Monday that Pearl Street will be adopting an "inclusion rider" for all future projects. Her aim was to improve diversity in some crew jobs and supporting actor roles when it doesn't interfere with story sovereignty, financing, or insurance. 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.

According to Cox DiGiovanni, Affleck and Damon will also ask studios who produce films they act in (but don't necessarily produce) to also use inclusion riders.
The heightened buzz prompted the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, founded by University of Southern California professor Stacy Smith, who floated the idea of inclusion riders in 2016, to tweet out a quick explainer on the term. Specifics of the rider are also undisclosed at this time.
