Act Now: May Is International Internal Audit Awareness Month
Internal auditors around the world are joining together to build awareness about the importance of internal auditing this May during International Internal Audit Awareness Month. Awareness month efforts offer internal auditors a heightened opportunity to advocate for the profession, both within their organizations and in their communities. The IIA and its chapters and Institutes are actively promoting the value internal auditing brings to organizations, hosting forums and roundtables, and so much more! But beyond this annual monthly recognition of our profession, internal auditors must make a conscious effort to enhance awareness year-round.
As IIA President and CEO Richard Chambers said in a blog post, “Every time you undertake a risk assessment, launch an engagement, conduct an interview, or publish a final report, you must strive to deliver internal audit as an ‘indispensable resource.’ Otherwise, the words of those extolling internal audit's value will ring hollow.” Access the Building Awareness Toolkit for resources and tools to help you start your efforts today.
