Prior to joining the gallery, Stang was Director of OxyArts at Occidental College. In addition to serving as the college curator for the art gallery and the campus at large, she launched a multidisciplinary arts programming initiative including a new visual artist-in-residence.

From 2002 to 2012, Stang was Senior Education Program Manager at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) where she oversaw public programming. Most notably, Stang initiated Engagement Party, a museum program that offered residencies to artists exploring socially engaged artwork. In 2012, the catalogue Engagement Party: Social Practice at MOCA 2008-2012 was published by the museum.

Stang has held various positions at local government and community-based arts agencies. A contributor to ongoing dialogue about progressive contemporary art and education, she has served on the boards of several Los Angeles-area arts organizations and has taught courses at USC and Occidental College.
