​Share What You Did to Build Awareness!

As COVID-19 tightened its grip on the world, The Institute of Internal Auditors postponed formal recognition of International Internal Audit Awareness Month. Under normal circumstances, May reminds us that we have much to be proud of. And, by spreading the word to others about the value of internal audit, we increase awareness of internal audit’s important contribution to organizations and the public.

Although 2020 has been anything but normal, many chapters and affiliates are continuing to build awareness in whatever ways they can, and some have let us know about their efforts. Thank you!

We want to recognize important achievements in May and in the months since to elevate the profession, whether they involved extraordinary efforts to overcome obstacles presented by the pandemic or simply to maintain some sense of normalcy.

How did you and your team rise to the occasion and demonstrate internal audit’s value? Were you able to hold events, even if only virtually? Were you able to pivot from in-person conferences and meetings to online platforms to ensure continuation of training and educational opportunities for practitioners and outreach to stakeholders?  Perhaps you organized “wellness checks” on members to ensure that everyone, as a community, was getting through it all.

We will recognize your achievements with a special digital award, inclusion in the champions list below and on a special page featuring vignettes and photos.

Submit your achievements for recognition.
