Internal Auditing Around the World XII is a milestone issue in our annual series: every internal audit leader we interviewed is female. While we have certainly featured women in this publication many times over the past 11 years, the number of women who hold top leadership roles in the internal audit profession is increasing. This is a very positive trend in the business world and in the internal audit profession, and we believe their success is worth acknowledgement and celebration.
This is why we chose to interview only female internal audit leaders for the latest edition of our Internal Auditing Around the World series. The 22 women profiled in our 12th edition offer a unique perspective on how technology-enabled internal audit functions are helping their organizations to fully embrace the opportunities—and understand the risks—of becoming more data-driven, technology-enabled businesses.
