IA Awareness Month

The IIA encourages individuals and Institutes around the world to celebrate and promote awareness of the internal audit profession to our stakeholders.

International Internal Audit Awareness Month is celebrated each May with events and activities around the world. Whether you are an active IIA member or new to internal auditing, there are many things you can do to raise awareness of the internal audit profession among audit customers, executive management, and boards of directors, students and others in the business community. Follow the conversation on #IIAMay.

Get inspiration through The IIA's complimentary Building Awareness Toolkit to see how professionals around the world have been celebrating the month throughout these years. The toolkit features a digital icon, articles, videos and customisable PowerPoint presentations for you and your team in awareness-building efforts. Do your part and be an ambassador for internal audit!
