Women in Internal Audit Leadership Forum is Now a Fully Virtual Event!
September 16–17, 2020
As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, our absolute highest priority is you. While The IIA had hoped to host the Women in Internal Audit Leadership Forum in Washington, DC in September, continuing concern around the health and safety of large groups has made it clear that we cannot proceed as planned.
Although we must cancel the in-person event, The IIA is committed to ensuring that you can still participate in this premier event from your home or office. The 2020 Women in Internal Audit Leadership Forum will still take place September 16–17, but is converting to a fully virtual event, featuring the speakers, sponsors, networking, and education you expect from attending an in-person conference.
This 1.5-day, knowledge-packed, online forum will bring together women and men who support the professional advancement of women in internal audit to shine a spotlight on opportunities to enhance growth and social equity. New strategies, tools, and resources will be shared in an environment of engagement and collaboration to help women in the profession gain and maintain success in their leadership roles.
Attendees can still earn up to 12 CPEs while benefiting from a unique blend of interactive facilitated sessions, informative educational presentations, stimulating dialogue, revealing success stories, and tangible takeaways. Learn about building your influence, hiring and retaining the right talent, developing a brand that promotes value, and enhancing leadership attributes — all within a virtual environment!
Forum With 100% Satisfaction Rating Now Expanding
The Women in Internal Audit Leadership Forum sold out in 2018 and 2019, speaking volumes about the demand to continue the conversation and achieve our goal of closing the gender gap for women in internal audit leadership roles. Both men and women alike have found tremendous value in the forum — so much so, that it has received a 100 percent satisfaction rating from attendees. This has led to The IIA’s decision to expand the 2020 Women in Internal Audit Forum from a one-day format to a one-and-a-half-day virtual format, enabling the program to cover even more content and giving attendees more time to learn from one another.
By bringing together women and men who support the professional advancement of women in internal audit and fostering an environment of engagement and collaboration, we shine a spotlight on opportunities to enhance growth and social equity.
