    I´m not so sure about the difference between equidad and equality.

    L@s profesionales participantes en esta investigación colectiva usaron el marco conceptual de inclusión/exclusión social, a partir de la asunción de que la integración de las mujeres en el mercado de trabajo es un factor clave para conseguir más equidad e igualdad de oportunidades tanto en la esfera pública como en la vida privada.

    Is this a good translation?

    The specialists participating in this joint study used the conceptual framework of social inclusion and exclusion, assuming that the integration of women into the workforce is a key factor of more equitable opportunities in public as well as in private life.

    My suggestion: "... is a key factor in the pursuit of fairness and equality in public as well as in private life."

    La verdad es que ahora mismo no lo recuerdo muy bien, pero la equidad surgió como un principio legal. La igualdad se aplica a cualquier contexto (igualdad de sexos, por ejemplo) y la equidad es parte del derecho.

    You could say "more fair and equal opportunities."
