Avoid being pigeon-holed – Dr Ali Soerensen

As I entered the medico-political advocacy space as a registrar, I rapidly became aware of the division within our profession.

Swearing allegiance to an organisation seemed non-negotiable.

A significant mentor encouraged me to broaden my engagement; to avoid being pigeon-holed. She implored me to communicate, collaborate and empower; listen rather than just hear.

As it is, we have far more in common that than that which divides us. I am quietly optimistic about this project – together we can build bridges.
