Tech and Harm Reduction Symposium

Brave's annual virtual symposium is an opportunity to explore places where technology and harm reduction intersect, to share our discoveries, and to learn from each other.

We know that working in silos can inhibit innovation, but we also know that knowledge-sharing and communication can encourage it.

What will you bring to share?

Our first year was pretty stellar, and we couldn't have asked for a better team of speakers and presenters to start us off. You can read more about who they were and what they shared in Brave's 2022 Tech and Harm Reduction Symposium: A Synthesis of the Day.

In addition to reading a summary of our first year, you can also view the filmed sessions.
