inclusion rider

(redirected from inclusion riders)

inclusion rider

A stipulation in a contract (of an actor, director, etc.) intended to ensure that a film's cast and crew is representationally diverse. The term gained widespread attention when actor Frances McDormand used it in her Academy Awards 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.
