Getting Real With Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: An IIA Virtual Roundtable
Based on a chief audit executive (CAE) roundtable discussion, this latest global knowledge brief outlines how CAEs are identifying internal audit’s role in helping to create, integrate, and measure a vibrant diversity and inclusion strategy that positively advances an organization’s culture.
An attendee survey revealed that 36% were at the beginning stage, 50% at the intermediate stage, and 9% at the advanced stage of a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) program.
The discussion centered on:
- Getting real beyond rhetoric and theories to identifying real issues and strategies.
- Understanding how CAEs address each term: diversity, equity, and inclusion.
- Exploring some tangible approaches to changing mindset, taking actionable steps, and measuring results.
The panel was led by Crowe and The IIA’s Audit Executive Center.
