Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) will be among the panelists at the Dove self-esteem workshop, along with the Boys and Girls Club of D.C., held ahead of Wednesday’s competition between lawmakers. It’s the first time that the workshop, which aims to help build self-esteem and beauty confidence in girls, is being held at the game.

Besides the Democratic National Committee chairwoman, panelists include representatives from Dove and the program’s director for the pro-female public leadership organization She Should Run. The group will chat with girls and young women about self-defeating thoughts that have stood in their way and how they overcame them.

The baseball game, which pits Democrats against Republicans at Nationals Park, raises money for three Washington-area charities.
