Matt Damon and Ben Affleck made headlines this week when their production company Pearl Street Films announced that it would be adopting inclusion riders for all their projects going forward.

The concept focuses on diversity and centers around actors, directors and other Hollywood stars demanding in their contracts that all positions, both on and off screen, include a diverse set of hires. Actress Frances McDormand popularized the idea while talking about it during her Oscars acceptance speech for Best Actress at the 90th Academy Awards.

Damon and Affleck aren't the only ones who are taking on inclusion riders, as a slew of A-listers have answered McDormand's call for more diversity in the film industry.

Here are a few other big names who've pledged their support for the concept.
