The general manager of Cape York Partnership Ms Fiona Jose has been announced as a finalist for the 2015 Telstra Queensland Business Women’s Awards.

Kuku Yalanji and Torres Strait woman Ms Jose nabbed a spot in the purpose and social enterprise category after her work in the Cape York region attracted the attention of judges.

Ms Jose says she hopes to pass on the mentoring she went through with the Cape York Leaders Program to the next generation.
