The Foundation Board comprises those personalities in the Sonova Group who are associated with the foundation’s purpose, due to their attitude and their commitment to date. The foundation’s independence is assured by the external Advisory Board, made up of experts in audiology, which is responsible for evaluating suitable projects proposed to the Foundation Board for the allocation of foundation funds. The Advisory Board members are all employed in an honorary capacity. Incidental expenses are reimbursed as and when they occur.
In addition, three Sonova employees are given the opportunity to liaise with the Advisory Board and serve as employee representatives for a two-year term.
The office is responsible for the foundation’s communications and supports the Advisory Board in the administrative and organisational management of the foundation. Alongside these duties, the office maintains contact with stakeholders and partners.
