About Ocean

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We want to put our money where our mouth is on all things equality, diversity and inclusion.

We want the communities around our screens to feel like we represent them fully and fairly.

We work with charities and not-for-profits to amplify a message which is timely or relevant to a location or an awareness day. This as an opportunity for us to learn about these subjects from those who know them best, alongside helping amplify the message of these amazing organisations so our communities can learn too.
