Michael B. Jordan helped HBO, Warner Bros. develop inclusion policy


Michael B. Jordan played a role in Warner Brother’s new inclusion policy, and we are hopeful that more studios will follow in their footsteps.

Just when we thought Michael B. Jordan couldn’t get any more perfect, we find out he is doing a lot of work to help make Hollywood more inclusive. As it’s showing itself more and more: diversity and inclusion in Hollywood is a big problem. While there is still a long way to go, WarnerMedia is taking a step toward making them happen. And it turns out, with a new inclusion policy backed by Jordan.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the company, which owns Warner Brothers and HBO, is instituting a company-wide inclusion policy that will look to hire more women, people of color, people with disabilities, and LGBT people. This policy is meant to guide them to hire more diverse people behind the camera and in front of it.

According to WarnerMedia, they want to be “[engaging] with our writers, producers and directors to create a plan for implementing this commitment to diversity and inclusion on our projects, with the goal of providing opportunities for individuals from under-represented groups at all levels.”

On Instagram, Jordan himself explained the importance of pursuing these steps to increase diversity.

As far as Michael B. Jordan is connected to all of this, the first movie that is being made with this policy in place is Just Mercy, a film he both stars in and produces. The legal drama is set to start filming this week.

Warner Bros will be the first large studio to implement a company-wide policy that is based off of the “inclusion rider” concept that Frances McDormand introduced earlier this year at the end of her best actress speech.

We’re glad that studios are finally taking steps to make their films more inclusive, and we’re also happy to see that actors like Michael B. Jordan are taking the idea of inclusion riders seriously.
