We are proud to announce that “You, Me, We = Oakley!” (YMWO) has been honored by the  International City Management Association (ICMA) as the recipient of the “Community  Diversity  &  Inclusion  Program  Excellence  Award”  for  outstanding  local  government  programs. The award recognizes communities for building or celebrating diversity and inclusiveness.  Oakley was one of just three recipients nationwide, winning in the category of cities with  populations from 10,000 to 50,000.
