Dilma Rousseff, an economist, was elected the 36th President of Brazil in 2010 and reelected in 2014. She is the first woman to have served as Brazil’s president. Previously, she was the Minister of Energy and then Chief of Staff to President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (2003-2010).The Rousseff government continued the labor and social programs from the previous administration and initiated policies to reorganize the Brazilian economy in the face of strong resistance. In 2016, Rousseff was impeached by the National Congress for allegedly breaking a budgetary law and was removed from the presidency. She continues to fight for the policies she supports and to defend democracy, both in Brazil and internationally.The event will be in Portuguese with simultaneous interpretation
