How to make shared calendar use the same color scheme as the original calendar

In Outlook I have a person in our organization and when I share the calendar the color coordination of the appointments does not carry over. How do you correct  that?

Our customer shares the calendar and would like the specific colors that they use to tell who is doing what task to be seen by each user.

What does "specific colors" mean?  The color of what, the calendar background, a category the item is assigned to, or something else?

A category an item is assigned to. @lciprianionut I tried the steps above but it did not fix the problem.

You cannot enforce a category color. Category colors are set by each account holder.

When shared with Multiple users. All users except for one are displaying category colors correctly. The other user have not set category colors either.

Then either someone went from computer to computer and set the colors the same or it's pure coincidence.  Colors are stored in each user's profile.  There is no way at all to enforce colors centrally.  Also, categories are global and not specific to a particular calendar, folder, etc.  There are ways to share category colors, but not through Outlook itself (i.e. not through any built-in feature of Outlook).  Doing that requires either a script or a third-party add-on.
