  2. 2. Introduction With more than two decades of experience in engineering and management, Donald Lee “Don” Pferdehirt is founder of ChemOps Insights LLC, a consultancy firm in Spring, TX. Prior to establishing ChemOps Insights, Don Pferdehirt worked as head of global technical support for methylene diphenyl diiscocyanate (MDI) operations for the Bayer Corporation. Over its 150 years in business, Bayer has primarily focused on innovation and development in agriculture and life science. Of the company’s four primary business units, the pharmaceutical division is particularly notable for its longstanding commitment to women’s health since the early 20th century.
  3. 3. Bayer Bayer was the first pharmaceutical company to develop an estrogen preparation for menopause, was responsible for the development of a key drug used in contraceptive pills, and was the first to offer contraceptive pills to women in European countries. In addition to its continued commitment to research on women’s health and reproductive care, Bayer supports charitable initiatives that benefit women in need. Recently, the corporation made a donation of $10,000 each to 13 domestic violence shelters specifically to support women who were fleeing abuse with their pets in tow. The money will ensure the shelters have the resources necessary to accommodate women in need with pets, preventing victims of domestic violence from needing to make the difficult choice to leave a pet behind.
