Networking, mentoring and professional development for spouses

Join us and reach your full potential in the Finnish society! Hidden Gems programme aims to facilitate the employment and full integration of international spouses. Hidden Gems promotes the growth and internationalisation by enabling local companies to tap into the “hidden” expertise of spouses.

Empowering spouses, showcasing talent

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.
