Every year the Australian Embassy in Brazil hosts an Alumni Leadership Conference (ALC) which brings together Australian-Brazilian alumni for seminars and workshops to provide professional development, networking, and future research opportunities. Last year’s online format was positively received, and the Embassy was pleased to engage several new alumni!


This year’s online conference, Celebrating Australian Alumni Advances in STEM, provides participants:


  • Opportunities to showcase how their academic backgrounds, expertise and experiences are contributing to positive societal impact, and enhancing the Australian-Brazilian bilateral relationship
  • A forum for current Alumni Grant Fund recipients to present their current research and projects
  • Recognition for alumni champions for their service to the Study in Australia video campaign
  • Exposure to Executive Coaching and expert tips for leaders in STEM
  • Networking opportunities among alumni and Australian statewide and territory study destinations


Day 1 features keynote and special guest, Helena B. Nader, PhD, first woman to become president of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences (2022-2025), followed by a panel of female leaders in STEM focusing on their unique experiences as leaders in academia, science, and industry.


Day 2 shines a spotlight on alumni and the impact of their STEM-related research and projects. Professional and personal networking time is built into both days.


The Embassy seeks applications from alumni interested in participating in the Conference. On Day 1, we are recruiting female leaders in STEM to join a moderated panel; on Day 2, all alumni, including non-grant recipients are invited to share past and current STEM-related research and projects during the Alumni Showcase. Alumni will deliver short, 5-minute presentations, each followed by a 5-minute Q&A with conference attendees. Submit your Expression of Interest here (deadline is 5 August 2022).


The Embassy is thrilled to welcome all this August! Register today. Please check here to view the full Conference schedule.
