Najia Ashar has had a decade-long journalism career with reputable news channels in including Geo, PTV, AAJ and GNN. With time, the increasing gender disparties, journalists’ security issues, lack of access to technology and digital skills became unignorable for her. Deterring human rights conditions in Pakistan, especially the shrinking space for civil society and media by lack of freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and civit liberties, contributed to the problems she was noticing. After attending the prestigious John S. Knight Fellowship at Standford University, she relaized the importance of digital innovation in traditional newsrooms. With prominent like-minded news media professionals, she established an advocacy platform, a safe space for journalists, especially women, to come together with civil society policymakers to find solution to pressing societal issues. Good people with the best of intentions heard the call and united for this cause. GNMI was born!
