Hidden Gems Spouses sharing experiences

Networking, mentoring and professional development for spouses

The Hidden Gems initiative and its activities aim to facilitate networking and full integration of international spouses in Tampere Region. Futhermore, the Hidden Gems initiative promotes growth and internationalisation by enabling local companies to tap into the “hidden” expertise of spouses.

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. Welcome to our community for spouses!

Funded by

The activities are part of the Talent Boost agenda of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment and funded by Tampere University and the European Social Fund. The ESF funding was granted until February 2020.
