Rich Gall (@richggall) and Jennifer Riggins (@jkriggins) talk to Yin Mei, Director of Strategy and Curriculum Design at Per Scholas about her career and background in psychology in this special episode that went out live on Chubhouse.

In the conversation Yin talks about her journey into the field, and how she developed an interest in technology from a young age as a child of Chinese immigrants in Minnesota, and explains how she moved from an academic background in psychology into tech training and cybersecurity.

The episode covers everything from Yin Mei's work at Per Scholas and how she works with subject matter experts to develop curricula that are always relevant and up to date, to some of the communication issues the tech industry faces around privacy and information security.
