Yes, you read that correctly. Warren Buffett is about to go social.
On Thursday at noon Eastern time, before the kickoff of the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting weekend, Warren Buffett is going to sit down and give an interview that will incorporate social media. This is going to be the first time for Buffett to interview this way.
This is also a relatively new topic for Warren Buffett as well. It is “Warren Buffett on Women and Work… and other Wisdom.”
He’s also planning to sit down and do a live video chat with Fortune in order to promote “Warren Buffett is Bullish on… Women,” which is an essay that he published online this past Thursday, and it will also be in a Fortune 500 issue to come out on May 6, 2013.
Warren Buffett is no stranger to women – each year, he is an honorary guest and interview subject at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit. This is the first time he’s actually written about women. He’s very motivated by the current buzz around women and work – thanks to Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean in and Marissa Mayer’s HR policies as the CEO of Yahoo.
Not only is Buffett going to be answering Fortune’s questions on Thursday, but he’s also be fielding questions from Twitter.
The three main topics being discussed are women and investing, women and management and women and the economy.
If you have any questions you would like to send via Twitter, do so to #FortuneBuffett
Buffett is going to be talking to an audience of students and VIPs, as well as the interviewer, at the University of Nebraska Omaha at 12 PM Thursday Eastern standard time. You can watch the chat live on CNNMoney.com.
