You may have heard about it before, but what exactly is an “inclusion rider”? In simple terms, an inclusion rider is legal language that filmmakers (like actors and producers) can embed in their production contracts, guaranteeing the project achieves a certain level of diversity, in front of and behind the camera. Seed&Spark dives deeper into the subject with the creators of Hollywood’s first inclusion rider: Fanshen Cox, Kalpana Kotagal, Amity Paye, and Dr. Tasmin Plater. They cover how inclusion riders are a powerful tool in combatting Hollywood’s lack of diversity — and share how to use them in our own work.
