No - equity is ownership in the company. All equity is owner's equity. (Other parts of the world may use those terms with particular legal meaning so consult legal counsel in your area for a more specific answer.)

That said, there may be different levels of equity in a company and the share classes assigned to those different levels of equity may empower certain owners to have more voting rights, more involvement with the company and so forth. So that can create a distinction in equity between the major owners or founding owners and other equity holders who later came in just as an investment.

Equity is also made up of owners equity or the cash the owner has used to establish a firm and the other type of equity is debt equity.
Owners Equity, the capital employed in a company, computed by deducting the book value of the liabilities from the book value of the assets. Also called net assets, net worth, shareholders equity

No. There is no difference between equity and owner equity. But if you a share holder then it is matters. Shareholders equity and owners equity is different. Shareholders equity is a part of the calculation of a company's net equity.

Let me do the research for you

Equity is the value of an asset
after all the liabilities or debts
have been payed.

owner's equity?
It represents the owner's investment in the
business minus the owner's draws or
withdrawals from the business plus the net income since
the business began.

Its now your turn to find the difference.

There is equity attached to a property, hence home owner equity loan is the type that uses the home as form of security for offered loans. The lending company will try to convince the home buyer or owner to put up his property as main collateral when trying to obtain an equity home loan. Therefore, if you consider obtaining a loan in order to pay up the bills or for any other reasons such as consolidating debts or paying off credit card interests, you have to realize there are risks that you need to consider.

The difference is very clear and as such what matters is the purpose it is applicable. The asset value and owner liability for the assets needs to be kept in mind always.
