On 7 March 2018, Black Panther star announced on Social media that his production company will now accept Inclusion Riders.
“In Support of the women & men who are leading this fight, I will be adopting the Inclusion Rider for all my projects by my company Outlier Society” captioned actor Jordan.

The simple two words Inclusion Rider was actually unknown to most of the people in the word until McDormand dragged it to the 2018 Academy Award stage.
“I have two words to leave with you tonight, ladies and gentlemen and it is Inclusion Rider,” said McDormand.
The following days Merriam-Webster tweeted it was the highest search following 90th Academy Award night. The definition of inclusion rider is a clause in a contract which demands a project to have diverse cast and crew.
Jordan was encouraged by the Three Billboards star and in response, he took the decision to adopt it. Moreover, he is also the first person to accept the actress principle since she reveals it in recent 90th Oscar stage.
In 2014, the principle was proposed for the first time by Stacy L Smith to serve the entertainment industry.
