The policy will offer women access to flexible working arrangements, paid leave, private space and various support and guidance.

Alex Mahon, chief executive of Channel 4, said: “This is Channel 4 living its remit, normalising a taboo subject by making it more visible, and we hope that 4Women’s fantastic work will inspire more in the industry to support women in their workplaces transitioning through the menopause.”
