Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are answering actress Frances McDormand's passionate call during her memorable Best Actress acceptance speech at the Oscars earlier this month.

After McDormand called for Hollywood players to adopt inclusion riders into their contracts to ensure gender and racial equality in hiring on movie sets, on Monday, it was announced that Affleck and Damon's production company -- Pearl Street Films -- is doing just that.

Fanshen Cox DiGiovanni, the head of strategic outreach for the company, tweeted the news, also thanking Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan for first announcing that his company -- Outlier Society Productions -- would adopt the rider for its future projects.

"@michaelb4jordan Thank you for always supporting broader representation in the industry," she tweeted. "On behalf of Pearl Street Films, Matt Damon, @benaffleck, Jennifer Todd, Drew Vinton & I will be adopting the #InclusionRider for all of our projects moving forward."
