Gleisi Helena Hoffmann (Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈɡlejzɪ e̞ˈlẽnɐ] or [ˈɡlejzj ɛˈlẽnɐ ˈɦɔfmɐ̃]; born 6 September 1965) is a Brazilian lawyer and politician. She was the Chief of Staff of Brazil from 8 June 2011 to 2 February 2014, during the presidency of Dilma Rousseff. Following her tenure as Chief of Staff, she became a Senator for Paraná and in 2017 became national president of the Workers' Party.
Gleisi Hoffmann began her involvement in politics in the student movement during her youth, becoming a Partido dos Trabalhadores' member in 1989.
In October 2010, Hoffmann was elected to the Senate, receiving over 3.1 million votes, the most voted senator from the state of Paraná and the first woman to hold the office. After four months in office, she was appointed Chief of Staff, the highest-ranking member of Brazil's Executive Office, by President Dilma Rousseff.
Hoffmann was accused of receiving R$1.000.000,00 (Um milhão de reais) of Petrobras dirty money in her campaign to the Senate in 2010. In 2018, Hoffmann was absolved of corruption and money laundering by the Supreme Court.
