The session featured a diverse panel of young faculty members that spoke about their experience transitioning from being a graduate student to a becoming a professional faculty member. Panelists include Dr. Michael Chester from Arizona State, Dr. Matthew Eckelman from Northeastern, Dr. Gabrielle Gaustad from Rochester Institute of Technology, and Dr. Caitlyn Butler from University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Berkeley, CA, USA, 11 June 2011, the 2nd Symposium on Industrial Ecology for Young Professionals (SIEYP II)
Industrial Ecology students are scattered across various departments and their involvement is often limited to ISIE and GRC conferences. To overcome this limitation, a regional student conference on industrial ecology was organized at Potawatomi Inn. It began with the idea of bringing students from research groups in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana and others that were conducting industrial ecology research. This was the 2nd Potawatomi Conference in Industrial Ecology.
