​Promoting the Profession and Building Awareness

On behalf of the internal audit profession and IIA members, The IIA works tirelessly to elevate the profession and enhance professionalism. Building awareness of the value of internal auditing is a key component of The IIA’s advocacy efforts.

Likewise, there’s a lot YOU can do to help advance the profession in your workplace and in your local community. The following resources are designed to support your efforts in promoting the profession.

International Internal Audit Awareness Month

To build awareness of internal auditing all around the world, May is designated as International Internal Audit Awareness Month. IIA chapters and institutes are invited to celebrate and promote the profession throughout the month.

Building Awareness Toolkit

The Building Awareness Toolkit features creative ideas, tips, and easy-to-use tools and templates for practitioners and affiliates to promote the profession during International Internal Audit Awareness Month and all year round. You can download the toolkit today!
