Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) says this year’s 15th Annual Vermont Women’s Economic Opportunity Conference, set for Saturday, October 8, in Randolph, will feature a special guest: U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Leahy said Justice Sotomayor will begin this year’s sessions with a question-and-answer forum with conference-goers. ‘Marcelle and I are delighted that she is coming to Vermont,’ said Leahy. ‘She personifies the American Dream, and her life and achievements already have inspired so many. She is a perfect match for this conference and its purpose.’ This is the 15th year for the popular day-long conferences, which Leahy launched 15 years ago. The free sessions will be hosted at Vermont Technical College in Randolph, Vermont, with lunch and child care included. This year’s practical, how-to workshops will offer tools for women at all stages of professional development, to expand and succeed in business planning and strategic media planning, to hone leadership skills, and to discover and apply techniques in work-and-life balance. Online registration for the conference begins September 6 at www.leahy.senate.gov(link is external). (FRIDAY, Aug. 26) — Senator Patrick Leahy
