Women Making a Difference in History

Women's History Month has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987.

Women’s History Month is a dedicated month to reflect on the often-overlooked contributions of women to United States history. From Abigail Adams to Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth to Rosa Parks, the timeline of women’s history milestones stretches back to the founding of the United States.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2020 Employee Engagement and DEI Survey!

Terminal News

Grays Harbor Terminal

If I haven't said it in a while, I appreciate BWC's level of service, mainly you and Jenifer. I just realized that I haven't spoken to her in a long while, and that's because I haven't needed to. There are never errors on the daily reports or the BOLs and never any data input errors. I really can't say the same thing for any other terminal I work with. So, that alone is a big deal! - Methanex
