Hidden Gems Spouses sharing experiences

Networking, mentoring and professional development

The Hidden Gems Finland initiative and its activities aim to facilitate networking, employment and full integration of international spouses in Tampere region.

In 2023-24, the focus is on peer groups. The peer groups help you navigate and plan your life and career in the new country. In many cases friendships are born!

Empowering spouses

Tampere Universities wish to equip the spouses to become the actors of their own success in Finland by providing tools in networking, mentoring and professional development. Launched in 2018, Hidden Gems was the first initiative in Finland to support dual-career spouses. Since then, it has organised a variety of activities related to networking, mentoring and professional development, as a key for talent attraction and retention within Tampere region. In 2023-24, the focus is on peer groups.
