inclusion rider

(redirected from an inclusion rider)

inclusion rider

A stipulation in a contract (of an actor, director, etc.) intended to ensure that a film's cast and crew reflect gender and racial diversity. The term gained widespread attention when actor Frances McDormand used it in her Academy Award acceptance speech in 2018. Several prominent actors that I represent have insisted upon inclusion riders in their recent contracts in order to guarantee that there will be more diversity on set.
