University of Massachusetts Boston Chancellor J. Keith Motley was honored at the Tenth Annual Good Guys Awards Luncheon held by the Massachusetts Women's Political Caucus (MWPC) on March 4.

The Good Guys Awards recognize men who have demonstrated an ongoing commitment and partnership in achieving the goal of equal representation for women in elected and appointed public office.

According to the MWPC, Chancellor Motley was nominated for his "commitment to academic and sponsorship programs aimed at assisting and supporting young women as they strive to achieve their full potential."

Also honored at the Fairmont Copley Place Hotel were U.S. Senator Edward W. Brooke, Massachusetts Senate Majority Leader Frederick Berry, The Boston Foundation's CEO Paul Grogan, and Stephen Weiner, a partner at Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C.

The Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus introduced the Good Guys Awards in 2002 to honor men who demonstrate an ongoing commitment and partnership in achieving equality for women.

The luncheon is held each year in January or February. The money raised at the Good Guys Awards is used to fund the programs of the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus Education Fund.
