IIA professionals within their first 0 – 7 years of their internal audit career may apply to be both a Mentee and Mentor. Depending on interest, a mentor may be paired with multiple mentees.

Planned Meetings:

The program is scheduled to kick off on November 16, 2020following an orientation for mentors and mentees to discuss program structure and expectations. The first mentor-mentee meeting should take place virtually after the program begins in November. Monthly meetings are recommended for the ongoing program, but each pairing is encouraged to determine the appropriate cadence that works best for them. It is required that these meetings occur virtually until Washington state reaches Phase 4 of Washington’s Safe Start plan.


Guided Experience:

Mentors and mentees will be provided with handbooks to guide their meetings and the development of their mentoring relationship. Each pairing will be required to agree to and sign a mentor/mentee agreement to ensure a productive and rewarding experience. Mentors and mentees will establish a goal with a provided goal setting template during their first meeting and work together to accomplish it during the duration of the program. Each pairing will set their own agendas and cadence for the virtual meeting.



IIA Seattle Mentor Program will provide periodic check-ins with mentors and mentees to ensure connectivity and program satisfaction. Mentors and mentees are welcome to contact or chapter34@at any time during the program with questions or concerns.
