Empowering the Next Generation

Mentor. Collaborate. Lead.


Engaging conservative women in local, state and national leadership through collaboration and mentorship.

About Our Organization

Connecting Conservative Women (CCW) is an organization of conservative female leaders working to support other like-minded women in getting engaged in leadership roles in Texas.

CCW serves as a mentoring forum whose members hold a wide array of experiences, including business owners, city and county government elected officials, statewide elected officials, political consultants, communication experts, fundraisers, and governmental appointees.

CCW provides a venue for women to seek information about local and state leadership positions, as well as encourages women to engage in open discussions with experts. CCW’s members share their experience and knowledge with women and assist them in achieving their personal success.


Our first CCW events have been a huge success! We heard from great women like Hope Andrade, Tracye McDaniel, Cynthia Leon, Nandita Berry, The Honorable Linda Koop, and many others.

Events like these help us find and spark interest in the next group of conservative, female leaders in Texas, connecting them with mentors and providing them with the tools they need to be successful.

A Message from Christi Craddick

I am often asked why more conservative women are not serving in elected positions or accepting leadership roles across Texas. I know it is not for lack of enthusiasm or motivation to fight for the conservative principles we all so deeply value. A common thread in those discussions revolves around women desiring access to mentors for guidance in navigating the process. We all know the value mentors provide, helping us stay the course and drive our dreams to reality. We are putting that idea into action through our Connecting Conservative Women forum and we encourage you to join us!
