answer text <p>Tech Nation (formerly Tech City UK) does not directly fund tech start-ups, though they do run programmes such as Rising Stars, Upscale, and Future Fifty, that help start-ups access funding. They have published a report that highlights the state of diversity in the UK tech sector, and the need to do more especially for female founders. The report is available at https://technation.io/insights/diversity-and-inclusion-in-uk-tech-companies/</p><p> </p><p>They have also joined a consortium with Capital Enterprise, Your Startup, Your Story (YSYS) and Diversity VC, funded by JP Morgan, that aims to double the number of female and ethnic minority founders in three London boroughs by 2020.</p><p> </p><p>Meanwhile, as part of the Government’s work to increase diversity and build a Britain in which small businesses continue to thrive, Alison Rose will lead a review into barriers to female entrepreneurship, and exploring what can be done to overcome them. The review will bolster the Government’s work to make it easier for women to access the support they need to get their ideas off the ground and grow their businesses. The government will consider and respond to the findings of the review when it is published in the Spring.</p>

answer text <p>The UK Digital Strategy set out our commitment to enabling a more diverse digital workforce. As the digital revolution progresses, many more jobs will require digital skills and many more tech roles will be created. We cannot afford for underrepresented workers, such as women or those from BAME backgrounds, to be excluded from or unable to progress within these roles. However, Government cannot do this alone and we have engaged with numerous stakeholders to help us further our aim.</p><p> </p><p>We are aware that the Inclusive Tech Alliance launched on 14 November 2018 and we will be engaging with them.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Most breaches of the GDPR are not criminal offences and would not therefore be subject to criminal prosecution. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) can, however, impose large administrative fines on organisations which fail to comply. The very worst data breaches, including those involving the unlawful obtaining or disclosure of data, may be subject to criminal prosecution under the Data Protection Act 2018. Investigations into offences committed since the Act came into force in May 2018 have not yet reached the prosecution stage.</p> more like this

answer text The UK will always be a European country that advocates for cultural diversity as part of its global identity and is committed to continuing its contribution to and support of European culture. The Government has been clear that will be explore participation in any successor programme to Creative Europe.

answer text <p>The UK is a global leader in strong data protection standards and protecting the privacy of individuals will continue to be a priority for the UK after we leave the EU. The EU Withdrawal Act retains the General Data Protection Regulation in UK law. It also allows the government to make technical corrections to it via regulations so that it continues to be operable when the UK is no longer an EU Member State. The Data Protection Act 2018 will continue to sit alongside the retained GDPR to ensure we have a complete data protection framework.</p> more like this
